[vlc-devel] [PATCH] win32: do not load wininet.dll on startup, it's not a Known DLL

I don´t see any technical content here (and so I am not quoting).
This is not the place for trolling.

Filip and I objected to dynamically loading DLL - the patch at the top of this 
thread - because it adds complexity ("onion") and fixes literally nothing as 
far as VLC is concerned.

Merging the manifest into the executable does not affect the source code. And 
while it agreeably does not fix any VLC bugs, it does "save" one file in the 
VLC installation, and mitigates the failure of anti-malware to detect manifest 

What is the concern with the manifest being inside or outside the executable?
