I agree.  I've been trying to wrap my head around this for the last
day and I just see this as a lose lose proposition.

With external player support, I can, if I like, set the player to be
/bin/bash and have the video be a shell script to do just about
anything.  I mean, I could get today's MythVideo launch DOSEMU to run
a '90's era demo scene "video" if I like.  When will the internal
player support that?
