Disable vout_RequestWindow. It has never worked properly

Some people should have read some documentation about threading before
they did 1000+ commits. Yes, I am obviously annoyed. I have been fixing
VLC for 18 months because of these "great former developers".

/* FIXME:
* This code is utter crap w.r.t. threading. And it has always been.
* First, one cannot invoke callbacks from another thread's object.
* Not without a well-defined locking convention.

* Second, this would need to "wait" for the interface to be ready.
* Otherwise, the availability of the embded window would become
* time-dependent.
*
* In the past, this kind of things worked by accident. This time is over.
