AFAICT, decoders are spawned by the ES OUT, which is controlled by
the demultiplexer, which is controlled by the input.

In any case, it is more of a question of how long an audio output
can survive. Afterall, I could imagine vout and aout could survive
multiple inputs - this may actually avoid some inconvient HW cracks
and flickering when going from one playlist item to another.
I just don't know this is actually handled in the output core.
