If you by "command line" refer to interfaces, such as
`modules/gui/ncurses.c` or `share/lua/intf/*`, that runs in a
terminal, I agree with you, but I am not sure that we would like to
add support for such interaction in any other places than those (and
of course other interface implementations).

Perhaps one could add a diagnostic for modules that support such
change of values, that is printed on use, stating that there are
options to select. Though, isn't it already possible to get the list
of entities by looking at the output associated with `-H` and the
module in question?

I am all for increasing the usability of the current interfaces, but
adding support in the core for reading from the shell where the
instance of vlc was spawned, if any, sounds like the wrong path to
