There's no reason to clutter the mailing lists info with this one.

Information about this etiquette, preferences for both styles, and history
and reasons for both is *readily* available from *many* sources with
cursory Google searching. The FFmpeg mailing list isn't the greatest venue
nor is this discussion necessary.

Simply type "top and bottom post" into your favorite search engine.
