You're right : i've forgot that the default implementation simply passes this message
to the next responder so with super we don't break the responders chain. 
Moreover by default the next responder is the superview, so same result 
for less code and more accurate.

In this case, all the events won't be sent to the view. Maybe later we need to manage
the keyboard events. Thus libvlc application should be able to enable/disable mouse-events
and keyboard-events independently.
What do you think ?
