I think you're the first person to mention this.

It depends on what your end goal is. If you would like to have a simple
command line player that doesn't have many of the advanced playlist features
and you don't care about maintaining the future changes for that platform,
the you should probably go with 1.3.1. However if you want the latest and
greatest stuff, go with version 2.0.0

Not that I know of -- the assembly stuff only gets used on x86 platforms. On
non x86 platforms the normal C code will be used instead.

See above.

That should be ok -- if it breaks for some reason it should be pretty easy
to fix.
