Functions are cheap, API safe, and doc friendly.

The problem with this kind of approach is that it tends to be a mess.
There is no static check possible for the parameters, and there is no
actual exported documentation, not even raw headers.

And even the goal for libvlc is not to be that versatile. I think we
want it to be a *stable* API for VLC.
