Well the issue i was worried about is this:
vlc --sub-filter marq <somevideo> creates an object with name "marq" in
the libvlc children tree. (Since we didn't assign a name with the
marq at name syntax)
vlc_object_find_name will return a pointer to that marq instance (making
it easy to check if a marq instance is runing)

If you also use the find on the libvlc_global children tree, you might
end up returning a pointer to the marq module (in cache), and not the
marq instance.

So basicaly: you have to be sure that it won't be looking in the
libvlc_global tree. (Of course you'll be ok if you assign unique names
to the obects yourself)
