J7N is an unknown quantity at this point

Because I noticed how long it takes to start the new v1.39. If I simply "not use" the extra modules, they will still get loaded. Look at Foobar2000, for example: The core is 160 kB, you add only the i/o formats and DSP/GUI you need. The BSPlayer v1.36 executable doesn't decode anything by itself, but is 3 MB long already (uncompressed).

I fear that the new features will bloat the program to an unacceptable level – much like a codec pack. I could say: Install all the codec packs available and just lower the merits of unneeded filters.

If I buy a computer, I don't choose Dell, because the name means nothing to me. I might like a Dell monitor because it's Sony aperture grille, NEC or Plextor burner, Seagate harddisk, etc. I have 3 HDDs (~698 GB), others might call me an idiot and rather invest money in a videoadapter for video games. This is their choice.
