And that's a good thing.
The 2 scenarios where root is needed (opening network port below 1024 and
realtime priorities) are taken care with the use of vlc-wrapper.
It is true that it isn't noted in NEWS but VLC have been outputting
warnings when run as root for a long time.
So if your use case is not taken care of by vlc-wrapper, please give
more details. Else i'll add a note in NEWS and close the bug
