In my view, the use of FIFO is altogether wrong.

To be honest, the implicit reliance by the VLC project on volunteers to
perform code reviews demotivates and annoys me, even more so in challenging
economical times.

On top of that, you have been active longer than I have, and you are a
commercial developer. I don't think *your* customer(s) deserve *my* time
and expertise.

Please figure it out yourself.
