Hello! Thank you for making VLC, it is a great tool. I'm using VLC
as a volunteer at courses and occasionally large conventions for the
deaf community, where the entire program is presented in Sign Language.

As you can imagine, video is critical. A convention program with several
speakers is like a small scale live TV production. We don't have much
money, so I have been advocating using VLC as a standard, since it is
open source and portable across whatever computer systems have been
donated. One thing that would make VLC much easier to use in this
environment is to have each video clip in a playlist automatically
freeze or pause on the last frame. This would provide a moment for
the technician to smoothly change the projector output back to one
of the live cameras. During a 30 minute lecture, we might easily
show 10 or 15 short video clips, so you can see how this kind of
feature makes a big difference.

I have implemented this feature following as best I could what I saw
in the code. VLC is very well implemented, and easy to follow the
code layout! I hope you will consider merging my code. I have tested
it on Ubuntu Linux 9.10alpha3 and Windows XPsp3.

  Added a new option, play-and-pause. When this option is set, the
    input thread is automatically paused when each item reaches the end
    of the file.
  Add myself to authors.
