Yes but no. vlc_sd_Create() already creates the (SD) object with which to 
instantiate the SD plugin.

The media source per se does not instantiate any module: it does not call 
vlc_module_load() or any of its wrappers. And it does not also not implement 
any legacy programming interface based on VLC object variables either.

With neither of those two artifacts, it does not really require a VLC object.
