Gale 05Sep08 00:37 UTC: I think I can give you the user perspective on GSoC now, as I understand it. GSoC will have held up 1.4.0 (if we're lucky) for 6 - 9 months. Wonderful as it's been, it's effectively prevented any substantial fixing of core things that used to/ought to work. It would be much better for 1.4.0 (after all, most users work with Stable, not Beta) if it could contain one feature from GSoC even if partly disabled. Users want something radical in 1.4.0 as the benefit of the wait. I think FFmpeg (or possibly on-demand) are candidates. My vote is FFmpeg - to me, take out the custom exporter, and it's close to there now. Also one substantially new thing in 1.4.0 spreads the learning curve rather than loading it all into 2.0.0.
