This should fit what you were talking about.
I removed libvlc_media_add_option_untrusted, as it was almost unused,
and replaced it by a libvlc_media_add_option_flag function.
Even if some extern projects use the old _untrusted function,
switching to the new one shouldn't be too difficult.
I tested the libvlc exported part, however, i didn't test the c#
binding, nor the activex and mozilla modifications.
