The problem is that small parts of the patch would break binary
compatibility in xine-lib-1.1.x. This is no problem if a distribution
decides to include the patch and recompiles all applications which use
xine-lib-1.1.x.

I still do provide those patches as not all people are willing to switch
to xine-lib-1.2 (hg) which is still in development, contains the patches
and therefore works out of the box.

And you wouldn't mind applying a huge patch on VDR to achieve this goal?
