Please do only remove plugins that are non-working and unmaintained.
Hermes works (and even is maintained, no?), modplug supports features
mikmod doesn't and probably can't with the sorry state of libmikmod
(seeking and multiple elements come to mind) and I'd guess mjpeg supports
stuff jpeg doesn't support, too (though I have no idea in that area).
