I second this.
Additionally, it would be nice if there was some form of notification.  
For instance it would be good to be informed of the loading of the next  
playlist item. Interfaces could react on this and adapt certain things.
I also think that we should give playlists and playlist items more of a  
document feeling. Opening Closing Saving, multiple instances etc.
This is already possible for most of the stuff, but it still has a bit  
of a 'hack' feeling. It could all be done nicer.
And to provide a set/get method for each variable that other parts of  
the code might need. This is actually good coding practice in Objective  
C which we use for OSX. I see no reason why we shouldn't use this in  
libvlc as well.

But then again. I'm used to Objective C ;)
