Ok, good to know but it doesn't solve everything because for example your 
video window can loose the focus and not respond anymore to keyboard inputs 
even though it will still be displayed on top of everything else. Ok this is 
a minor problem because you still have the mouse and can interact with the 
interface, but still I'm not entirely comfortable with this method.
What I would like to do is provide the user with the option to choose the 
method he prefers. But first we need to rewrite the configuration part of vlc 
so that it's easier to add plugin specific options (by easier I mean less 
kludgy ;-).
