[vlc-devel] [rfc] warnings on nonsensical chain configurations

I've been toying with fronting vlc for some other rtp/mpeg4 stream, and
one of the things that emerged was that

  --sout '#rtp{dst=ip.ad.re.ss,port=nnn,sdp=rtsp://ip.ad.re.ss:mmm/stream.sdp}'

is a combination that causes breakage. To wit, streaming to (vlc) clients
starts fine but within 30 seconds all or all but one will have given up.

I don't know if this is a bug beyond being a nonsensical chain configuration,
but it would perhaps be nice if vlc could at least warn if the options
conflict or cause nonsensical chains to be constructed.
