  On Windows, as far as I know, there is no way (or tricky ones) to
completely bypass the libdvdplay module, since it is built in, and there
is no dvdold input.

  And personnally, I couldn't make a single DVD menu work (sorry, I
forgot, _one_ worked :-). And I don't even mention bug #122... It is
a distinct possibility that something is wrong _only_ with me (yeah I
know, something is wrong with me anyway ;-), and yet...

  So I would be more than happy to see VLC 0.5 shipping with DVD menus,
but only if they work at least 50% of the time ! I believe that a simple
notice is not enough as it permanently causes trouble.
