The problem is that if I hit unwritten rules, I have no way to find
beforehand. For example this patch doesn't break any unwritten rule,
as far as I can tell. It makes the Chromecast "control interface"
module work just fine.

But anyway we can discard it as I want a solution that works for
libvlc too. So the module cannot depend on the playlist too much.
