I already talked to Mauro about that.

There's a simple problem: How to coordinate maintanance.

Currently the two projects are already no longer independent, but
if you merge the CVSs, I feel that you also need one maintainer,
not two. I.e. at least one person who can follow development
for both analog and digital TV, and prepare and send patches.
Otherwise we end up in a mess.
