Agree, i also wanted to do such thing for a while, but got no interest.
Actually first we need a list of the most annoying bugs...

Sure. and if you dont apply them, then the developers are angry because you
didnt apply them. you can't be good, whatever you do.

I hope if i rebuild mplayer from scratch, i will know all parts of it.
But at least it will be a clean design, so anyone can understand the code.
