I had one more idea. How about some way to create trusted hosts?. I am not hiding under a rock or a screen name in what I do. You come to my web, you find me.

I remember the MP3 URL exploit in earlier versions of Winamp. I used it with an Old Time Radio site to launch program information into the mini-browser. That was cool, pictures of them, broadcast dates, but that went away because some jerk figured out how to blow peoples computers up with it.

Maybe something like "PayPal verified" for Winamp, so that we could use the features of the system without worrying that our work was going to be scrapped because some idiot figured out how to turn a feature into a security risk.

Just a suggestion.
