Only in the last case the osd stuff should be displayed. So it seems to me that it is not too bad when we implement that into the GUI.

I want to send a friendly ping for that issue, and I would be glad to read your opinions.

I don't think that its a good idea to duplicate the code already implemented in hotkeys.c and enforce this osd stuff for everyone who uses the aout_volume* functions.

Jean-Baptiste, would this be acceptable for you?
