I am not speaking about libvlc_event but vlc_event. About the global  
union, that the part that would need fixup.

Note, that was done on purpose to:
- centralize possible events, and be quickly able to find every  
possible event in libvlc
- simplicity
But for the internal libvlccore API this is not what we want.

However fixing this shouldn't be too complicated, and we have plenty  
way of fixing that...

Yet, variables shouldn't be used in that case and we should move to
