It seems that separate stream/access is actually not that much work.

vlc_stream_Block() can continue to allocate block_t, as it's almost 
exclusively used by demuxers extracting timed data, so nothing to do there. 
This leaves stream_t.pf_block(), stream_fifo to fix on the input side, and the 
module cache for file reading.

Then there are the clear abusers of block_t & block_fifo_t as a command queue: 
VoD, RTSP server and Caca output.

But still, type separation notwithstanding, this patch needs fixing for leaks 
and stuff.
