My code has been submitted to the vlc code path for a good while now.  
Fenrir submitted it sometime back. I've been maintaining those patches  
since Nov 2005 (not yet against 0.9.x though). Unfortunately it seems  
to be a feature that doesn't get much of a look in nor many requests,  
so getting the code activated (and possibly updated) never seems to  
happen. DJ Hartman was still on hiatus at the time and has had his  
hands full since. Perhaps it'll get some more attention shortly as I  
know jpsaman and myself will be having a chat about it soon.

Kind Regards
