yes I see as a lot of fluctuation in the overall status of each....

If I may ask, the current "interface" 'oldrc'.... is that going to 
remain around?  is their something better i should look at?  i think the 
approach I will take is to build a universal .net/mono lib which will 
interact with VLC at arms-length buy maintaining state and controlling 
VLC instances thru some sort of "control" mechanism, parsing data and 
such and translating to events.... blah blah blah..  in the end the same 
feature functionality should exist as the other libs, but not be 
dependant on the actual LIBS, but more the control interface and its data...

so question is, what is the most robust (feature / control wise) 
interface, that is going to be supported today and somewhat future (as 
no one knows what changes may come)
