Hi Taylor,

   Just a brief follow-up WRT the DVB TS frame counting patch.  I know 
you're busy, but I was hoping to get this into 0.18.  Any chance of 
committing by the weekend?

I have a bad habit of fixing people's issues off-list to reduce noise.  
This seems to have hurt me in this case.  There have been a few people 
posting with problems that they thought were my patch, but weren't (or 
were the old, broken, patch).  Because I fixed them off-list, the list 
subscribers (e.g. Isaac) are left with a false impression of dodgyness 
about my patch.  Any suggestions on how to keep the list low-noise 
without letting other people's problems taint my patch?

Be well,

Will             :-}

P.S.  CC'd to the dev list.  Hope you don't mind.
