Well, it would be a hit if achieved, you manage to trigger an improvement / modernization across the whole system.. independently of what skin or type-of-skin is used. That would be wonderful.

That's a good outside-of-the-box thinking.. taking into account that the ML is quite characteristic of Winamp, any changes to it would really improve the user experience.

Maybe that's the point actually; not to add more features but to improve the existing, making it more flexible and allowing it to be "improved" only where possible.

In any way, I see it all as an improvement, you know I'm not on the boat of "everything-is-perfect-now-don't-touch-it".. Besides, the break in numbering (to 6.x) allows an elegant way to add an option (where possible / feasible) for those not liking the new feature (sort of "Enable Winamp 5 traditional ML").

Sort of like a "Quick access" page? :P
