[dt]foo_winamp_input[/dt][dd]broken unicode support, broken multithreading, buffer overrun exploits, several other unfixable issues; use at your own risk.[/dd]

If you are an author of one of above and have fixed the issue, please send me a PM to get this list updated.

(*) Banned components are blocked from being loaded by file name. This action is taken to prevent users from experiencing problems caused by faulty components. If you want to force them to load anyway (or you are a developer and want to test a new version), rename the dll file (e.g. to foo_whatever.dll).
We are the bork. Your software bugs will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.
