DrO, I think at some point in our infinite free time (hahaha) we should develop and release a 'reference' input plugin to help developers better understand how to take advantage of some of the newer Winamp API features like direct decoding, replaygain, global playback config, metadata. With some cleanup, in_flac might be a good candidate for this
