Important changes for users:

Important changes for packagers:
 * The module cache has moved to ${libdir}/vlc/. The module cache can now be
   generated at install time except if you use staged installation. In the 
   later case, you can generate the module cache in your post-inst script
   by invoking 'vlc-cache-gen'. If the module cache is not present and vlc
   can't write in ${libdir}/vlc/, it will result it vlc taking a long time to
   launch each time.
