I think that this is a feature that is very specific to some uses. And  
only seldom used. I am curious to see the users that actually really  
need and use on that feature. Such an anecdotical feature should not  
be driving the development of VLC.

GUI interface makes little sense to be loaded at the same time. It  
will also never work in the common case.

However, the http interface could still be a library, that you could  
(dynamically?) link to, from either libvlc if that's part of the API,  
or directly from the interface.

This approach has the advantage of correctly *layering* main  
interfaces and secondary interface. As there would be a main interface  
that drives the secondary ones.

The other advantage is that, this kind of secondary interface could be  
integrated in custom applications.
