Log Message:

  * Put most builtins in plugins again due to performances issues (more
    about this in a forthcoming post here).
  * Fixed the painfully slow build process (at last!).
  * Moved the null plugin together with the dummy one.
  * Added new dummy input plugin.

   More on the dummy input plugin: we'll use it to insert commands in
  the playlist. Currently implemented are the "quit" and "pause" functions,
  here are examples on how they are used:

    vlc file.mpeg vlc:quit                # exit after file.mpeg has been read.

    vlc file1.mpeg vlc:pause:3 file2.mpeg # pause 3 seconds before playing
                                          # the next file.

   From now we can more efficiently benchmark vlc. For instance, to test
  the video output changes I am doing, I use such a command:

    time vlc -I dummy --noaudio file.mpeg vlc:quit

   Future extentions might include more interesting stuff like "switch
  to full screen", "repeat next file 3 times", "switch to SDL video
