That won't work out of the box. There is a need for vout_window_Send*() for 
proper support of EGL and of Qt5. We can no longer assume that the video 
display plugin knows the windowing system, nor that the video window plugin is 
for a unique fixed windowing system.

Uh? Obviously events generated by the windowing system from outside VLC are 
sent by the windowing system *to* the display plugin or window plugin, and 
from the plugin to the core, not the other way around. I don't see how that 
would make any sense.
