[vlc-devel] Callbacks in modules written in C++ have wrong linkage

The main reason I am doing cleanups such as this is because I am very new to the
codebase, and "cleaning" allows me to get a more in-depth picture of what is
going on.

I never meant to start an argument, just trying to contribute to a better
codebase in some way or another.


I do understand that this issue is not easily solvable, and no, it probably does
not matter for the platforms the code is being compiled for; but I still enjoy
writing (and utilizing) code that is Standard conformant.

Maybe I am b0rked from actually having to compile code for platforms where this
actually matters.

I was talking about the same thing, compatible in a "lossless conversion back
and forth" kind of way.
