Dolby/Surround Sound Support

I have been using winamp as music player since 1997. I don't have much demands, I am mostly happy with it was it but it would be great if following features are added.
1) Dolby/Surround/Multichannel sound support
2) Up mixing of stereo channel to 5.1<.
3) Integrated lyrics support.

1) Winamp already supports source files with surround channels. Go to the General Preferences - Playback - Playback tab to enable this option.

2) There is a plug-in that up mixes stereo to 5.1 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/winampmatrixmix/). The up-mix is passed to Winamp's DirectSound output plug-in. This plug-in can also up-sample if you want that.

3) There are several plug-ins that provide lyrics support. None work perfectly. The main problem is that there isn't a single reliable and comprehensive online database of song lyrics.
