aren't these two separate issues ?

is this really a blocker ? I'm not sure.

I will at least look at this this weekend, but not sure.

This will be fixed (patched up might be a better description). I  
already have working code for msot prefs, will finish the others

I still have a rather common crash in the end and begin fullscreen of  
the OSX interface, as well as a common deadlock situation, but it  
might just be that I cannot find a solution for those any time soon.  
They are quite annoying, but I just don't see how to deal with those  
at this point in time.

And let's not forget about broken mp4 muxer.
