[vlc-devel] [RFC PATCH] vout: add the window provider module

This patch is completely broken.

It does not work at all on Wayland.
It barely works on X11, is not compatible with the existing semantics.
It includes stuff that makes no sense for an embedded video window.
It contradicts the design aspects agreed upon at the window and surface workshop.

I am not forcing you or anyone to implement this. If you are unwilling or unable to do it, then don't. But don't force me to review such a half-baked "RFC".
