	Okay, I finally got access to Coverity's xine scan. Does MPlayer's scan 
include any external libraries? As you know, xine chooses to maintain 
external libraries in its own CVS codebase. Out of 343 bugs,  33 come 
from FFmpeg, 52 from libdvdnav, 5 from liba52, 11 from libfaad, 5 in 
libmad, and at least 2 from files that aren't even used anymore (hmm, 
maybe this scan was useful after all).
