No. No way,

First, I refuse to limit VLC rendering to whatever the current Qt version on 
Linux distros can do (and the associated bugs). We want to support Vulkan 
going forward, and who-knows-what in the future. Using QtOpenGL is no go.

Second, as already mentioned in the previous iteration, I refuse to have two 
different sets of code paths for rendering just for Qt.

You have to provide vout window for all three window types that are currently 
covered by Qt (Win32, XWindow, and Wayland).
