pulse: New pulseaudiosink element to handle format changes

This introduces a new bin which wraps around pulsesink and depending on
the formats supported by the sink, plugs in/out a decodebin2 as
required. This allows users to switch sinks on the stream and adapts
accordingly (for example, you could watch a movie in passthrough mode on
your receiver which supports AC3 decode, then plug out and switch to a
non-digital profile to continue uninterrupted on analog output).

The bin is required because doing the same with playbin2/playsink will
require API changes that cannot be made in 0.10. With 0.11/1.0, we
should be able to ask for upstream caps renegotiation to deal with all
