Moving code from plugins into the core is not desirable. It bloats the LibVLC 
run-time. And obviously, duplicating code is not a very good idea either.

IMHO, if some code needs to be moved, then the image code should be moved to 
the image plugin. The image handler interface is already modularized anyway.
