seems they don't do it properly at least. Valgrind is unhappy with it.

in one of the cases there is a vlc_object_find that is only used for the
stats, so in that case I'd say it's for performance reasons as well, and
then the below check wouldn't work. Anyway stats do seem to be a drag at
the moment, according to oprofile at least a few of the top cpu huggers
for me usage were stats-related. clocking in at about the same cpu usage
as the mpeg video packetizer. Some optimization seems to be needed.
