Why not?

My guess, and it's just a guess, is that a few guys with old OS/2 machines thought it would be cool, so added it. Highly unlikely they devoted mainline VLC devs to it.

And you are exactly right.

One guy, from Korea gave use very high quality patches for OS/2 that did not break other platforms and were easy to maintain.

On what ground could we refuse them?

I just thought there's some secret OS/2 using club (outside of legacy industrial machines :))

There totally are. People still use OS/2 because they think it's the best desktop OS ever created, they are tiny in numbers but are more than capable of serving themselves' needs.
