My take is that if you feel you have a better way, I'd really
appreciate it if you worked on it and shared it. 

The problem I think we're having is not that there are too many ideas
but that there's an awful lot that needs to be done especially in the
user-interface area.

Yep, probably like yourself I dislike the vlc_object_find( p_xxx,
VLC_OBJECT_PLAYLIST, FIND_ANYWHERE ) and then accessing the internal
structures that. And yes it is sad to see this in a number of modules.

Right now there's no alternative that I can see. But if someone offers
a better solution, I'll be happy to change the code I've added for this.
