I agree that would be a very good use case. Unfortunately the libvlc
currently doesn't seem to offer a good way to identify which vout is
which. When creating a vout wall can we assume which screen number is
which via libvlc ? Otherwise I think we should keep such a refactoring
API/changing for VLC 4.0.
