I do agree, which is why the interface is still here, because it's a
good thing when it comes to extending the code.
However, I don't see the point in implementing an interface that will
always return NULL, and therefore that is must likely to cancel the
playback later, or worst, crash if return values are not check
accordingly, which is why I'd rather return NULL directly, remove the
NullAdapterLogic/NullManager implementations, as it doesn't change
much, but feels more natural in my opinion.
