On such cases, if no contact and no support will be provided anymore, someone should patch it and offer it for free as an "official" release. Some sort of "liberation" of abandoneware that can be useful for some people under certain circumstances (obviously willing to accept that the soft is provided as-is without guarantee or support..). Having the original author agreeing with it would be ideal.

I think there could be several Winamp plugins that fall under this category and this way it can be kept sort of relevant or available instead of totally forgotten and unusable. I know you DrO will point out that it could be a nightmare for the official Winamp support but maybe a big statement of "presence of unsupported plugins on the info tool will make official support not viable" could be enough..
