This is correct. While it's true that I was hoping for the mplayer
developers to change their minds and subscribe to a decent release
engineering process, it seems it is not going to happen anytime soon.
I was planning to switch the mplayer port to a svn snapshot some time
next week (new year's resolution!) and continue with updated snapshot
ports in the range of ~3 months or so. That is, if there is no
objection from committers's perspective.

@Wes: Would you mind sending me your modified port? TIA.

Best regards,
