The whole point of libvlc is to hide the dirty internals. So obviously, there is not.

That does not make sense. By design, it is a matter for the plugin API, definitely not the external API.

Indeed we dont want the libvlc API to depend expose and therefore to freeze the core/plugin work split, nor the different types of plugins.

I think this should not exist anyway. It would be useless due to thread-safety constraints. Refer to the old DBus plugin topic on thread problems for details.
