Yes, that's a good point.

Also from the user side, we have so many common needs and overlapping
interests, I'm convinced we can all work toward a unified audio/video kernel 
config (or set of configs) and provide builds for different architectures 
and distros.

This would simplify a lot things, and combine indeed our too many local and 
isolated efforts.
