The problem is, there is no way to know if the plugin is enabled (or activated, selected, highlighted, etcetera). All of output plugins are enabled, always. Not a single winamp clone exhibit such a questionable behavior, only winamp itself. There is a standard initialization and shutdown procedures unfortunately the winamp keeps every plugin online once started. It just takes the only single "open" procedure to start the actual playback. The plugin cannot rely on playback start\stop events obviously as it gives no information on actual user choice status.

I hope someday this winamp "feature" will be fixed.
