i don't have much exotic media files, but i asked around and will have 
in the next days some sent to me to test. 

as far i know, all the codecs that are listed in the list here


and have a .dll ending are affected, right?

another question: the new xine-lib has just the codecs dependency 
removed, right? it has no difference in binary. so if some user wants 
to build and install codecs pkg later, he can do on his own, right? 
if so, i see no problem with it in general.
