Because it gives the gst people motivation to fix it.

It WorksForMe.  That's not to say there aren't bugs, because there are,
but I use it all the time.

That's good to hear.

I want to merge.  I've said that many times, and I still want to do it. 
But if everything has to be absolutely perfectly right at first, well,
that kind of makes things a little bit harder.

I'm glad you're still here.  We quite frankly need you.

Some of the code is definitely suboptimal, I agree.  But you know what
they say, "Build one to throw away; you will anyways".

It's not like I'm perfectly happy with the situation here either, Jorn. 
You know though, I've heard people say that often one can trace the
cause of forks in a lot of free software projects to personal
animosity.  Let me say, I hold none against you, and I never have.  

I respect your decisions.  I just disagree with some of them.  

So I'm going to do as much as I can to keep a merge possible.  I've put
in effort to keep the coding conventions (even though I don't like a lot
of them, to be perfectly honest), I haven't reorganized the source tree
at all, I've always been available on IRC to talk, I've listened to
pretty much all of your requests to change things, I've been tracking
the rhythmbox tree to see what's happening, and all in all I think I've
been pretty reasonable about the whole thing.

I think you mostly have been too.  So I just hope we can keep it that
