you are going to incorporate the goom one in the general visual filter 
Now THAT sounds like a bad idea to me.
I'd rather split up the visual module in a separate scope, spectrum, 
random and dummy audio-filter modules in that case.

That's a general problem with autogenerated menu's. It's something that 
needs to be fixed at the variables system level an gibalou plans to do 
it, but it isn't an easy task.
The same problem exists for audio and subtitle channels.

this ought to be fixed by a 'special' option in the vout that needs to 
be check by every single vout i guess.
