you'd have to ask the old development team why it was never properly documented and why it had to be reverse engineered of sorts.

my experience with most Winamp input plug-in authors is that they're not too bothered as it means targeting 5.x when they just want to do the minimum which leaves things at a 2.x level (and so excludes the additional api support) and means they're not then doing weird hacks to support more things than XMPlay & other apps able of loading input plug-ins allow.

i agree fully that it's something which should have been documented properly (hence the mass of additions made to some of the sdk files since i've had a chance to work on them) but it's like everything with Winamp, there's just not enough time/resources to do things.

initial documentation of things should be done by the end of the week (i suppose an advantage of me being out of work at the moment).
