irrespective of the open source nature of Winamp, if the licensing agreement was allowed then you'd be starting to code from scratch.

you'd be better off making a general media player for those formats and then provide Winamp style skin loading as that's all that most people would relate things too. this really is no more different than all of the 'we want a true Winamp for linux requests'. what makes Winamp what it is - it's skins & plugin's & if an alternative codebase was able to provide support of those then you'd have a Winamp of your own. too much is being placed on the name & code that is irrelevant when you have to look at a completely different OS/platform.

but that's just my take on things.
