Hi all, thanks for your support.  things are moving along steadily.
three things:

1) when I make even minor changes to my module, I have to "make clean; 
make" from the top of the tree for my changes to register.  I would 
have thought, as a shared library, i would be able to recompile just 
the library... am I missing something? (btw, I'm on OSX)

2) i've found a minor bug in the standard tree (demux/wav.c, for 
example); what procedure do you want me to use to send updates?  a 
diff/patch file?

3) see below:

I wonder if it would be helpful to popup a warning or perhaps not allow 
any primary interfaces that would cause problems when starting up a 
second time.  The "extra interface" dialog box is a text box (the 
primary one being a pulldown) so it was not clear to me initially that 
selecting logger as a primary interface would cause problems.  In fact, 
a ./bootstrap and reconfigure didn't reset the primary interface line 
in the vlcrc file....
