I was interested to see what the reaction to that would be like!

that comment was inspried from me giving up on the precompiled binaries 
and trying to compile it myself, the versions that were available 
(without me running unstable) were all wrong, it was really frustrating.

heh, I 'been here' for more than a year, I wont say its cause I cant 
work out how to get off the mailing list, but its been interesting 
watching the problems that come in.
it would take me as long write something new as to work my way around 
the piles of stuff kdenlive is made of, esp as I have no idea how it 
grew into all its dependencies.

I don't intend any insult to your project, its the compilation of a lot 
of good work.

thats my take,
