it is a fairly big, and potentially disruptive _internal_ change. it
has no user-visible attributes
it is about how vlc objects  -- vcl is the visual components library,
which is responsible for the abstraction of just about anything that
make its way on your screen --
life cycle is handled.

every windows, every dialog, every tabs, in general an as complete as
possible exercise of any gui item,
as this change _can_ reveal life-cycle management issue with these
objects.. in case of problems, the symptom will likely be 'crash'
