Indeed, but it's quite a pain to have to maintain 2 trees then.

I'll see with vidix.sf.net maintainers (for who they still are now)
what would be their opinion about it.
MPlayer probably is the main user of vidix lib but I know that xine
does too (i'm sure VLC doesn't, no idea about GStreamer) so we might
need to check that xine project didn't patch vidix either.

Diego, would it be technically doable to have vidix stored in mphq
through SVN as ffmpeg is ? I'd like your opinion before going further
on vidix devel list.
