[development] Questions for Drupal Multimedia

As you probably know by now, the book Drupal Multimedia is nearly ready 
for publication. Before it goes to press however, I want to acknowledge 
all the work Drupal developers have done towards making Drupal the 
choice for multimedia on the web.

I want to include a final section, "In their words" kind of thing, and 
am posing some open questions here. I would love to include your words 
in the book, so please feel free to answer any or all of these questions 
with a paragraph or three. If you do answer them here, please also 
indicate a byline for attribution, such as "Alice Boyd (abc on Drupal), 
Co-maintainer of the Mega Multimedia Module," "Wile. E. Coyote, 
Developer for Acme, Inc.", or "Tim Berners-Lee, Inventor of the WWW."

I know it's short notice, but I need these by Saturday. I figure this is 
the best time for these questions, as many contributed modules for media 
handling in Drupal 6 are just about ready for deployment, and there are 
many production sites already using Drupal 6.

1) What modules, tools and/or techniques do you use (and/or have you 
created) for multimedia handling in Drupal 6?

2) What advice do you have for new developers and/or themers?

3) What do you envision for the future of multimedia in Drupal, for 
Drupal 7, Drupal 8, and/or beyond?

Feel free to respond to this thread or to e-mail me personally at
