Yes we've got a misunderstanding.

Remember that the current VLC architecture is based on a tree of parent -> 
children objects.

What I'm proposing is to collect the events in the children that have the 
capability to do so (namely vouts and intf right now), let them process the 
events that they are interested in and forward the rest to the parent 
object which will be in fine the playlist (actually it should be p_vlc but 
I don't see the point in creating a thread in this object).

That way you'll avoid duplicated code and have an event architecture that 
better respects VLC's global architecture.
