Hello Philipp,

your patch was not accepted for the following reasons:
- it doesn't respect our coding style nor (more importantly) Cocoa's  
naming scheme
- it involves objects which shouldn't deal with the matter (meaning  
that you're doing it unnecessarily complicated)
- this way, VLC would forget your setting every time a new vout is  
created. This can happen everytime an item gets started.
- the menu item isn't named in proper American English

Additionally, your patch wasn't submitted in the way we require them.

Still, your idea was good and I wrote a clean implementation myself.  
It is committed now (see 2d63b67e97034199cbf8979bf714d3c8536af240), so  
this fix will be included in both VLC 1.0 and in a potential 0.9.x  
bugfix release.

Please don't see this as an offence and keep contributing patches to  

Best regards,
