You're absolutely right here.
The problem behind is that there are about 250 working plugins for VDR and about 200 of these 
are only maintained by the distributors.
So its a lot of work for all distributors to patch these plugins to get those running again.
(And I would prefer for my distri to patch VDR instead of fixing these plugin Makefiles)
But you don't have to care about this, the distributors are using many patches :)
