I don't care about nonexistent apps that use an as yet nonexistent input item option. And by the way, zero is not "a lot".
There are a number of apps ignoring the documentation and setting avcodec-hw in libvlc_new(). They will break no matter what exactly as the documentation warned they could, and they will have to adjust their syntax.
I do care about VLC and LibVLC working correctly, so not reintroducing parenting bugs and/or module string matching bugs. I also care about performance and thus not recreating the decoder device at every ES selection.
