[vlc-devel] [RFC] -- stream_filter issue

In today's code, probing _all_ stream filters is done first thing, and
cannot be deactivated.

This can be a problem for content that needs to be passed untouched to a
specific demux.

An example is the skins demux submodule:

  - "vlc /path/skins.vlt" used to launch a given skins. It is currently
broken, because a decompress filter (zip or decomp) is forcibly used at
the stream level.

  - In future, describing skins available on the vlc website (with mrl +
meta data via an xspf file) could be nice, but mrl like
http://www.videolan.org/skins2/skins.vlt should not be decompressed

  Would it be possible to either :
   - make this "automatic stream filters" feature optional (with the
option declared safe in a playlist)
   - or have no automatic stream filters as default, and only activate
it explicitly.
