My answer is a clear and determined 'Maybe'. ;)
A new stable release would bring lots of useful features to the end user
that is still sitting on 1.4.7, so this is surely worth a thought, maybe
with a few smaller additions from the todo list. (Not that the
'developer' builds are anywhere near to being 'unstable'.)
However, with some working fallback for multiproto compatibility, I
don't see a reason why multiproto support should be dropped from a new
stable release. Depending on how much needs to change for full h264
support, it might be better to spare that for the 1.7 cycle, but
optional multiproto API support should be possible for an 1.6 stable.
So my vote is: Yes, but based on the full 1.5.14 including multiproto
and some fallback concept.
