No you did not :-)

I said I wanted to fill the mp4_track_t structures in the
stream_filter module though, and I didn't get objections at that time,
not from you nor from Laurent.

It's a little frustrating to have them now. That being said, I'm paid
to work on that, and you're not (if I understood well), so that
frustration is somehow irrelevant :-)
