Multiple WAV Files With Gaps (Noncompliant)

I have three questions concerning cue-sheet created in EAC with

"Multiple WAV Files With Gaps (Noncompliant)"

  * Is there a plugin for winamp, to play such CUEs?
  * Is there a plugin for foobar, to play such CUEs?
  * Is there anything that converts such CUEs into compliant CUEs, keeping all information (REM, INDEX 00, ...) as far as possible?

thanks

1. I don't know, I'm not that familiar with winamp

2. foobar plays these CUE sheets and doesn't require any plugin for that. However, future versions will no longer support the noncompliant CUE sheet type (=decision of developer). It is already the case in the current beta (0.9.x)

3. Obviously not. Otherwise nobody would be using the noncompliant CUE sheet. The reason why people use it anyway is that when you extract WAV files appended with the next track's gap, there is no compliant CUE sheet available: the CUE sheet standard does not allow that a track and its gap are stored in seperate WAV files.

What can be done is converting BOTH cue AND wav files into either an image or separate WAVs for which a compliant CUE sheet does exist (= gap and corresponding track in the same WAV).
I don't know of any program or script that does the job, but I agree it would be useful.

One last thought:

Maybe one last question to the Foobar2000 team:
Playback of Cue sheets currently emulates a "append gaps to previous tracks" rip. Will this always remain so, or are there plans to emulate "true" CD playback?

This might be a question for zZzZzZz:
to what extent do you plan to take advantage of the Cue indexes in future foobar2000 versions?

Why this question? Currently there is no advantage in playing back separate files through a noncompliant Cue sheet, over playing them directly. In other words these Cue sheets are redundant for playback untill the day that foobar2000 starts to take advantage of all indexes to further approach hardware CD player behaviour. If that's a possibility, I imagine that'd be reason enough for many people (incl. myself) to seriously reconsider Cue sheet alternatives.

So, what does the future look like, zZzZzZz? Thank you in advance.

No answer up till today, unfortunately 
Would that mean the foobar team doesn't have a vision on this topic?

You could edit the cuesheet so that it became compliant, but you would lose your INDEX 00 entries.

Using the cuesheet from the excellent wiki page as an example:
