Don't get me wrong, I agree that remaining NTSC issues should be fixed. 
However, VDR is in a stability phase of development, and we cannot 
afford to break everything again, now that the dust of the 1.3.x 
development settles.

I don't see NTSC as 'just a few users', I see it as way too few NTSC 
users. If we want to get out of the German or European corner, we need 
to be more attractive to NTSC users.

If you want to speed things up: Use the patch posted in this thread, 
test it and report all remaining NTSC issues. This will give the NTSC 
development a quick start as soon as 1.5.x development starts.
