Oh really? Nevermind that this was discussed on that beloved IRC channel
of yours.

I can see you don't read the development forum much. Binary breaks are a
pain in the ass. On Linux, everything must be recompiled since versions of
LibVLC conflict with one another. On Windows, there is not even a way to
differentiate version, since the number is not in the filename. And in
run-time wrappers such as JNI, you just get weird native crashes. Just

Besides, this was already discussed last time compatibility was broken. I
don't owe you another explanation, especially not *you*.
