	Could someone explain a little about the set_capabilities macro (or at 
least point me towards a more detailed explanation)?  I'm having to 
implement a demux (for file parsing) and a codec, and I'm not sure what 
values to use for each.

	In the course of debugging, I have deduced that my decoder is being 
passed a decoder_sys_t that is as defined for a52 instead of my own.  
This is obviously odd.  Has anyone seen anything like this?

	For what it's worth, I setup the logger module to output to a file, 
but after running and quitting once, VLC won't start up again (it just 
keeps bouncing on my dock).
