For example, try playing an input with some stream output related
options (like :sout-rtp-sap and :sout-rtp-name=foobar, that's what
the GUI wizard does). The sout object is not a child of the input so
variables are never inherited, and they go ignored. This is broken and
probably needs to be fixed.
