That's ridiculous.  Do you have this from a legal authority or an  
apple person?  I would have thought they would encourage consistency  
under the Mac environment. The current VLC version's buttons look  
exactly the same as the QuickTime player. I don't see why using  
Vincent's great design is a problem.
