Except media_list_player deadlocks either at the end of the first item (in 
trunk) or immediately (in 0.9 and 1.0), so the playlist is the only workable 
option. Moreover, I don't understand why we need so many files and functions 
for list handling, and why list and media are separate *yet* interdependent 

When I try to fix things up and I see so many functions, callbacks and 
structures, I can but give up. *I* _cannot_ fix it, even though I'd like to.

If things go like this, libvlc 1.0 will be just worse than 0.9.
