As a feature it always was desirable IMO, if the maintenance burden is acceptable.
But not as an inherent, impossible to disable, part of the architecture.
Also, since I am not aware of any developer owning dual-core or some
such, motivation to review will be low, so you have to plan in some time
and nagging for that part.
And definitely have a look at MPlayerXP maybe you can just cleanup up and
port some of its changes.
