[vlc-devel] Removing file concatenation from file access
rem at videolan.org

The scheme used for file concatenation in the file access plugin is
currently completely broken. It uses a "file-cat" variable. Now that
looks nice, but the thing is nowadays, many things use the access
plugins for other purpose than just reading the "primary" data source.
One example is the XSPF playlist which reads its data with the access
plugin too. And then file-cat will append data past the end of the XSPF
To me, the whole design is broken. So I am probably going to remove
this broken feature shortly.
