That is appreciated.

The lack of correct support of UPNP and DLNA in VLC is so shameful that
it is embarassing...

Thresh and Mirsal have been working on it. Accident on IRC said he
wanted to help too.

The cool part is that there is a LOT to do:
 - improving the SD api to be able to load partially the folders and not
   the full tree,
 - fix the Upnp client issues, its slowliness and strongly test it with
   multiple servers,
 - code and work on the Upnp server, improve it, fix it, and test it,
 - port on Win32,
 - DLNA support.

There is enough work for everyone to be occupied IMVHO, but at least
work together on IRC :D
