And at least Google folks seem to make it a habit to not send
modifications upstreams. Going the goole way will mean having the same
dll hell as windows which is a maintenance nightmare.

At least Mozilla has a much better track record in upstreaming their
stuff. In case of theora they are working close together with Xiph (and
even spent quite a lot of money to sponsor theora improvements).
There are bad examples as libpng though where upstream maintainers are
not willing to take extensions for apng.
