No. Codecs markes "untested" have higher priority that working ones, to  
"encourage" users to test them and report bugs.

As Rich pointed out, if you mark it as crashing it will never be  
autoselected ("crashing" codecs are used only if you force them with - 
ac), so people without windows binaries won't be able to play wma2  

The right solution is to mark ffwma2 as "working": since wmadmo comes  
before ffwma2 in codecs.conf, it will be selected when available; else  
MPlayer will try with other codecs (divx and ffmwa2, in this order).
