Actually, global library mutexes is almost the ONLY use case for this.

It seems some plugins uses it for other purpose, and they are most 
likely wrong; most of the time the libvlc_int_t instance object should 
be used instead. logo is one such offender.

This is not the first that's been pointed out, and I cannot fix every 
single of them myself; my feeling of guilt at the idea of breaking 
these is vanishing fast.
