If it's true, then that logic is broken in any case. It's broken if you use
a script name. It's broken if you use a SD plugin written with native C
code (as currently). To my knowledge, you can't make assumptions about the
uniqueness of a playlist item name.

I write "If it's true", because I have no clue what you are referring to.
playlist_ServicesDiscoveryAdd() compares the requested SD string against
the list of strings of already loaded SD objects. I fail to see any problem
with that. As far as I know, the same logic is used by --sout-keep and
works just fine with configuration chains.
