I thank you to have taken on your time to explain to me. This makes me 
understand 2 things :
- I do not percept well your organization and your activities. I believed that 
the mailing list was the reflect of your works, in real time. That is not the 
- I am not so helpful in warning you about problems that I am only getting a 
small view; I could not imagine you were working on the vlc event motor...

By now, I'll try to avoid to pollute your mailing-list.
