Just another note: Other PlayObjects would be written to implement
VideoPlayObject, and other interfaces (like, say, DVD) could be written
that inherit VideoPlayObject.
I don't see DVD playback going into Kaboodle or Noatun, as the amount of UI
required by a DVD exceeds the amount of UI already in those apps. I think
it'd make much more sense to have specialized apps for specialized
hardware, the way we already have a separate CD player. This way the UI
can be optimized for every case.
There won't be a problem of code duplication as we already have a player
KPart and interface which can be extended to give access to advanced
interfaces as they become needed.
