Okay, I finally got access to Coverity's xine scan. Does MPlayer's scan
include any external libraries? As you know, xine chooses to maintain
external libraries in its own CVS codebase. Out of 343 bugs, 33 come
from FFmpeg, 52 from libdvdnav, 5 from liba52, 11 from libfaad, 5 in
libmad, and at least 2 from files that aren't even used anymore (hmm,
maybe this scan was useful after all).
