[vlc-devel] [vlc-commits] Specify parameter names in include files

While I agree that the python binding parser code should be more
robust, this would take a time that I do not have. So I adopted a path
that was faster and in the end beneficial IMHO to the whole code, since
it maintains consistency in the libvlc include code. Stating that there
are plenty of libvlc include files with anonymous parameters is
bullshit (to quote you). The goal of a public API is to be documented

And since you mention it, I fixed declarations for parameters that were
described in doxygen documentation, with the exception of the
deprecated functions which lack such documentation.

Best regards, and have a nice day

In include file declarations, parameter names should be specified if
