I have no doubt Cockos would do a great job writing codecs from scratch, but I would bet a million dollars it's not even on their "maybe someday" list. :-) It would be a huge undertaking for very little reward.

Akin to why nobody should implement time keeping code themselves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5wpm-gesOY

That said, I wish Cockos wrote all the code I use. Maybe someday they'll hire 4000 people and they'll get into operating systems and cell phone apps and device drivers and image processing and web browsers. :-)

That also said, they did implement a score editor, which I never expected in a million years, so who knows what they have up their sleeves.
