I'd rather have no functionality than incorrect code. In open-source in 
general and VLC especially, refusing to merge (or threatening to remove) bad 
code is more or less the only way to get people to fix their code.

But fine. Go ahead. I disclaim all responsibility with regards to removing the 
code, breaking its compilation, its linking or its functionality in the 
future, without warning, should it make my life easier when implementing, 
fixing or cleaning up something (else). If the author does not fix his own 
code, why should I care? I don't think that would be for the better of the 
project though.
