[vlc-devel] Removing duplicated DVD input modules.

Hi people,

We currently have 4 different DVD input modules:

- dvdsimple: our very first dvd input which doesn't use any external 
libraries except libdvdcss. This input doesn't support menus but is useful 
when streaming or if you don't want to bother with menus.
- dvdread: is basically the same as dvdsimple but uses libdvdread instead of 
using our own UDF/IFO parser. No menus support either.
- dvdplay: our first DVD input with menus support. This module uses 
libdvdplay which hasn't been maintained for almost a couple of years. This 
module aslo has stability issues.
- dvdnav: our brand new DVD input with menus support which uses libdvdnav. 
libdvdnav has the advantage of being actively maintained and even though 
our plugin still lacks a few features, it does appear to be quite stable.

That's really quite a bit of duplicated code so I'd like to keep only 2 such 
I'd like to first get rid of the dvdread module while keeping dvdsimple and 
when the dvdnav plugin is mature enough I'd also like to remove dvdplay.
Anybody against this ?
