No, before we could follow internals->first in the debugger. Now it's 
hidden in an opaque list with no type and hidden behind macros.

I spent one hour trying to decypher the API and how it should be used, I 
never manage to produce anything out of internals->children. Let alone 
internals->siblings which just had garbage in it. I tried 
vlc_list_foreach(), vlc_list_first_entry_or_null() no luck.

It took me 5 minutes to undo this commit and find my leak.
