This isn't about saving volume on quit, but about saving volume on mute.
(if I understand correctly). Anyway it used to be possible for several
libvlc-instances to share a audio output, this may be why this setting
was global. I don't know whether this is still possible or not, and I
don't know if the volume is handled before or after the stage in which
the audio from different instances get mixed together. I just thought it
might be relevant.
