And again I will say, *I* do want them merged. I don't care about your
use case, and you don't care about mine, I'm not sure what we are
arguing about. Unless I rewrite the recordings portion, I won't get
what I want, and you already have what you want.
Having said that, I do have some hacks that do basically what I want,
but if the devs made it work the way I want, in a supported fashion,
then yay! Even better if it can work the way we both want it to, but
I'm not holding my breath.
Whatever happens, my vote is for merged video, but I'll take what I can get.
