[vlc-devel] [RFC] Removing RemoteOSD

The RemoteOSD plugin does not seem to be used by anybody. The contribution was 
a drop-in fire-and-forget patch 11 years ago, and frankly, using the VNC 
protocol for SPU is a gross hack. Search on fora or Google basically only 
leads to the source code or build logs (in fact, mostly --disable-remoteosd).

Even the server-side (VDR ffnetdev) with which this plugin is intended to be 
used, has been unmaintained for 6 years.

I propose to remove it, and then remove pf_sub_mouse.
