[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Merge PrintMsg and PrintColorMsg to avoid duplicated code

About messages on stderr, I would suggest to add a new built-in singleton
object (src/misc/msgstderr.c or in src/misc/messages). This object would be
referenced in libvlc_priv_t (src/libvlc.h), in the "singleton object" part.
This object would subscribe to messages queue in libvlc_InternalInit and
unsubscribe in libvlc_InternalDestroy.
This pretty simple mecanism could be the first step to unify all loggers in
the core. Hope that this object make your LibVLC initialization changes
easier for messages part.
Would you be interested by this stuff that I could do ?
