That is _not_ going to change. Too many features depend on this.

That is also not going to change: the whole point of the (otherwise 
crappy) VLC playlist is multiple interfaces/views. If you want full 
control over an input thread, create your own input thread (or VLM media 
or LibVLC player) and leave the playlist and its input alone.
