Yes, absolutely. I recommend you to get the master branch as such a  
major change will go in VLC 1.1 (or whatever the next major release  
will be called). The source for our rework can be found in a separate  
repository called "vlc-dudiak.git", which is also accessible with your  
browser on [1], if you want some inspiration. This code is probably a  
good base to get you started and it should be rather easy to backport  
to the master branch.

Best regards,
