BTW, vouts needs to deal with very low level window events (look at the 
directx or x11/xvideo plugins). There is no way on earth you'll have access 
to these events with a high level cross-platform GUI framework so you can 
forget about your idea to manage events in the interface plugin that's 
providing the window.

However having platform specific hooks in the interface plugins to be able 
to pass native window handles to the vout and then let the vout handle the 
events should be manageable.

Just my 2 euro cents.
