I had to filter out the subversion autoemails to get back to humane messahes :)

With the help of Meuuh at #videolan I've managed to make multiple
instances of aout possible. But I had to add a couple of tiny changes
to vlc core to make this possible (and I made this changes
switch-on-and-offable with a command line option).

Oh, then I'd have to clean the patch AND update it to svn HEAD. I work
with 0.8.6c so I can reuse debian packaging stuff - I want my
collegues to be able to just dpkg -i my custom vlc + plugin(s). But I
guess I could clone your git tree, find 0.8.6c, apply my patches there
and then merge to master...

Yeah, I'll do that right now...
