I'm not really sure putting things in "arch" is a good solution. It is 
really misleading. That means you always have to look for a specific plugin 
in two different places, first in the revelant category, then in arch.
arch/win32 is even more disputable because there really is only the 
interface plugin in there so it should go into something like

ogg is not a codec, it is a demux.
And you should also add codec/vorbis and maybe later on codec/tarkin, etc

hmm, I don't think it makes sense to have a visualization directory. I'm not 
sure about xosd, but scope should definitely go into audio_filter (it is 
just an audio filter using a video output after all).

You also forgot the video filter plugins, but I suppose you want to put in 
video_filter with a subdirectory for each filter (as you explained in your 
first mail) ?
