As I understand it, G2 is supposed to be more of a backend system for
playing movies, with minimal/no dependence on a particular style of
front-end. However, because of this, many desirable features that
don't exist now (e.g. runtime filter chain modification) should be
made available to the frontend code calling mplayer G2.
