I do worry that a lot of people who don't come to the forums will really be put off by the last release, and write winamp off as buggy and unusable.
Sounds more easy than it is.

All of the burning/ripping support in the library is based on the Sonic engine and i guess removing Sonic from ml_disc is the same like coding a new plugin. Same for in_cdda, the whole digital extraction code is using Sonic.

So shipping a version without digital audio extraction, CD ripping or even MP3 playback is no choice.

Ripping/burning, digital audio extraction and MP3 encoding/decoding is just working fine in the last AOL release. The only stuff which won't work is the online stuff.
