^^ That was for M3U.

I am not sure how XSPF works. It seems like it does not handle item options, 
which sucks as far as it's used for a "persistent" VLC playlist. On the other 
hand, security would suck if it did handle the item options...

Ideally, it would handle item options (but I guess that would be 
non-standard), yet it would read the file directly, rather than through the 
potentially insecure access/input chain (as with --vlm-conf). That would also 
remove the need for the huge XSPF loader hack w.r.t. --sout and friends.

I'm also confused as to how the ':sout='-style per-item options are handled. 
Is that specific to the command line? Where is it handled (could not find 
itso far)?

Finally, the browsers plugin are still broken. I guess libvlc-control lacks 
support for untrusted input item at the moment.
