Hi Sebastien,

I think we'll do one more release of gui/macosx and release the result  
of the Lunettes project somewhere after 1.1... But Lunettes is growing  
pretty fast and it's now possible to hope that we could only maintain  
1.0 and release Lunettes as vlc 1.1. Hope but still.

I'll merge your patches asap.

I don't think there is much to do around gui/macosx, it is easy to  
fix. Especially given that we didn't diverge much. I personally think  
that the "new" interface in gui/macosx is sort of a regression.

I think we should encourage every motivated developers to help us on  
the Lunettes side. We could largely use some more hands if we want to  
release soon!

That said, some part of gui/macosx should be revived. I am thinking  
about the dialog part, that has to be extracted and made into an extra  
interface module, available to libvlc users. (and vlc/Lunettes).
