Musepack should be supported by Matroska
Recently I had a chat with the (main) developer of mkvtoolnix, Moritz Bunkus.
As he frankly admitted, "the decision not to work on Musepack
is mostly due to lack of interest on my part ... and due to my lack of arbitrary
amounts of free time".
He is not against Musepack in Matroska in general, though. He said "I'd be very happy to accept proper patches that implement support for Musepack in mkvtoolnix if someone else wrote them".
Needless to say that my coding skills are not enough for such work, otherwise I wouldn't open this topic.
But maybe some of you, guys is experienced enough to implement at least a minimal support in mkvmerge?

Your thread title may make people think that's an official stance. Matroska is an open source project and one developer can't be expected to implement support for everything himself, even though that's usually the case, especially in audio/video related projects. I don't know anyone with enough interest in Matroska as well as free time to do this, but I'll see. In any case, if any of you developers could spend some time on this, I'm sure it would be much appreciated.

Yes, you are right about the title. I was in a sulky mood writing this, very disappointed after mentioned conversation. Please change the title as you decide.

No problem, that's understandable. Changed.
