Well, as you might have seen, I have spent a lot of time doing win32
fixes, VideoLAN administration and bugtracking/squashing...

The Qt interface has evolved quite a bit and the code is quite clean
(except the hatred qt4.cpp)
The main_interface layout and code is complex but clean and many
evolution have crept in.

I wanted to finish the evolutions, but unfortunately, no time to.
