[vlc-devel] [PATCH] [RFC] don't crash when detaching an event listener that wasn't attached

At least on Release builds I don't see why this should crash. It should return
an error so the caller knows it did something wrong and what. That will change
libvlc ABI if we return an `int` where there's currently a `void`.
