I ended up re-implementing it using the pf_setdemuxoptions approach I 
posted about earlier, as a sort of test case to see if the 
pf_setdemuxoptions idea would fly.  So far, it does :-)  My next trick 
is to re-implement the frame-based seeking I worked on awhile ago, but 
in the pf_setdemuxoptions paradigm.  I did this all with the latest VLC 
code from CVS, so merging shouldn't be an issue (though at work we're 
using the 0.5.3 codebase, so merging will be an issue for me tomorrow 

Anyway, since it works, I can do a diff -u and send the patch, while I 
work on reimplementing frame-based seeking using the same framework.  
Would this be cool?  Or should I make a Bugzilla entry (something like 
"VLC doesn't do ff / rew") and submit the patch that way?
