 At least for input_thread_t you MUST have a thread dedicated to manage
it, so it should not be a problem. (if you don't you will end up having
a lot of deadlock problems and you will perturb too much the input if
any time is used inside the callback for intf-event).

 A good way to reuse code would be to extract/recode the one managing a
input_thread_t in the playlist core to something generic, easing those
who want to bypass playlist.

(But there is currently a problem bypassing the PL, all playlist parsing
demuxer/access use playlist_t directly :(
