Have generic Rust code that handles the VLC filter API and then each 
filter be written in Rust without caring of the C binding. That seems 
cleaner IMO so when we update the filter API we only have this binding 
to update.

And then we could do the same kind of generic binding for codecs and 
pretty much every other module type.
