Rename would be quite wrong as burn and streamdev are already using this 
new funktion.
It was previously hidden in the patch section of both plugins.
Klaus just opened up the idea somewhat more to allow for reporting the 
busy-reason by the plugin.
The original idea of the burn/streamdev designer was to just report it's 

Active() had previously no real function when VDR was not patched. 
VDR was ignoring the busy plugin and just killed it :)
Now VDR should politely ask wether to kill burn and streamdev while they 
are busy.

To make VDR master again you may have to remove some double checks in your 
shutdown scripts for burn and streamdev.
VDR can still overrule a busy plugin by manually aknoledging a forced 
Scripts do mostly not allow this.
If again some script kiddy continously tries to hack into my VDRs ssh 
port, my shutdown script complain always about some still open ports. 
Would be nice to replace this with some mini-plugin still allowing a 
forced shutdown without having to kill sshd before VDR accepts shutting 
down ;-))
May be it's a good idea now to move all the shutdown scripts to some 
mini-plugin which still allowes a manual forced shutdown.

regards Peter

It still surprises me that the "patch" was so quitely taken over by Klaus
