If there was some documentation, you would probably get more
contributors. Except for the most trival changes, you'd have to spend
a considerable amount of time wrapping your mind around the code, and
by then, someone else may have re-written it anyway...

I just have to resolve "conflicts" that a smarter scheduler should be
able to do on it's own way to often for my taste. Forcing stuff to a
different encoder, or bumping stuff to a later timeslot or the like.
I was thinking of a chess-like algorithm...
