I used to have no opinion on this, but I think that VLC_UNUSED(arg) is  
a lot better than (void)arg. Mostly because this is more explicit, and  
then because it could be instrumented.

As a side node __attribute__((unused)) is probably better since it  
could allow certain optimization from the compiler. We could switch to  

Hence VLC_UNUSED makes it a bit easier if we wanted, for instance, to  
switch to __attribute__((unused)), because grep wouldn't return false
