Jan, please have a look at the patch, its not big. Each plugin-feature has a
name field which is the same as the GstObject::name. The patch avoids the copy,
but keeps a pointer to the string in GstObject. What David pointed out is if I
understand right, that the GstObject::name should be immutable. The name-ptr is
also used to locate plugin features. My suggestion was to make sure the
plugin-feature belong to the registry object (parentize). Then GstObject makes
sure the name can't change.
