--sout has been using a configuration chain since its inception. Now filters
do the same. Are you claiming that --sout does not work? I'm lost.

Interfaces are using whatever string is fed to them by the probe service. I
have not tested with a configuration chain (obviously), but I see no reasons
why it wouldn't work, so long as the probe sub-module formats the string

Anything that uses file paths.

I've heard that one before with Qt4. This may well be a grave bug in the LUA

Testing that would be quite involved to say the least. It's best to check if
the LUA interpreter, *and* the VLC callbacks into the LUA interpreter support
it. But even that would be tedious given the amount of code. So that leaves
you with the simplest and safest option: not to use vlc_cancel().
