    Hi, Arpi!

Sometime (on Thursday, May 22 at  1:07) I've received something...

    I could help with porting some of g1 stuff to g2, I'm just waiting
for config layer 0 final API. I think that some developers are waiting
for that too. :)

    With the new config concept we have to replace vo_info_t with
module_info_t and related stuff before mass-porting.

>(stream layer is compatible (stream.h is the same) and there is vf_vo2 for

    Let's finish with level 0 then we can implement these layers 1-2
(modules layer and config/commandline parser respectively) so I don't
think if it's a problem. Anyway dynamic loading part of modules layer
isn't too actual yet so it can wait, I think. :)
    Beside of this, levels 2 and 3 are application levels so anyone free
to implement it for own application. :)
