> gestures: change volume on playlist rather than interface

The aout_* interface APIs are currently assume there is only one audio output, 
meaning only one input (I believe they predate VLM).

I thought about tying them to the input thread, which would be the cleanest 
and most obvious design. Unfortunately, that would:
- prevent changing the volume when the playlist is inactive,
- loose the volume across stop/play cycles.

I also guess that input_resource_t cannot handle this (at least currently), it 
is preserved when the item changes, but not when the playlist stops, right? I 
guess ideally, we would have some kind of commun "input context" that survives 
inputs and would be common to playlist, VLM, and libvlc_media_list_player.

In the mean time, I am tempted to put run aout_* on top of the parent object 
of the input - which is the playlist when it comes to interface plugins. Next 
step is to actually change the way to find the audio output object.
