The point in this case is that this module will only be used for the NPAPI plugin and possibly in the future with the VLCKit framework. It will not be used for the mainline VLC distribution and won't be used for iOS either. So, IMO, it's quite reasonable to have a switch to enable or disable it depending on what you'd like to do with libvlc.

Best regards,
