I totally agree. Last year, I wrote a SVG rendering plugin, and the
worst part was copying the rendered bitmap (obtained through librsvg) on
the picture (with alpha blending,...). I would expect from the core vlc
a unified image rendering system which would make this task easier (in
fact, I am reading with great interest the commit messages on the work
done on ogt rendering and am waiting to see the rendering part exposed
at a higher level).
