I didn't push it, I proposed the patch, I thought about it a lot and I concluded that my PTS_DELAY hack was really bad. I don't see the rush.

I'm using the API you created, for me your API and my usage is well desgned.

Maybe, the patch 1 can have an impact I didn't see. As I say, we can limit it to the sout case. But I don't need the patch 1 anymore (I still believe it's a correct patch)

> - It is invasive.

Yes, the new lock from the i11e_register are invasive.

> - It has no proper tests, and affects a piece of code without proper tests.

Like 80% of code we push.

Did you really expect that the VLC 3.0 was a one shot release ?
