There are 2 things you don't seem to understand here:

1- Video outputs are higly platform dependant while the interfaces mostly 
aren't. Which means that the events loop has to run in the vout. The vout 
depends on this to correctly display the video and reimplementing the 
events loop for all the possible vouts in all the interfaces is not an 

2- Apparently you aren't planning to add the "video window created by the 
interface" in all the available interfaces (rc, http, lirc...) so you need 
to have the events loop in the vout anyway.

If you still don't understand this then don't worry you'll see what I mean 
when you'll actually start coding on it.
