This is a good initiative, Gildas, though I know of at least two 
persons who were planning to do it themselves and I didn't expect 
you'd do it. The reason we didn't do it earlier is that current 
liba52 isn't thread-safe, which will cause race-conditions on 
play-list change.

Michel and I have already talked about that (actually we know each 
other quite well :) and Michel doesn't have time to make liba52 
reentrant. Neither do I. Yet, he'll be very glad to accept a patch to 
make liba52 reentrant. Do you want to take this ? O:-)
