Yes. In fact the old state code could handle that too, except now
the API is much cleaner and the new state mechanism can handle a different
plugin concept we need to adopt soon (cothreads).
As an example of dynamic plugging, I suggest taking a look at gstplay
which uses a handcoded version of type detection to setup the pipeline
while data is streaming.
Expect autoplugging soon too. I have something that works and that can
automatically configure a pipeline based on the typedetection code.
Habit is habit, and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed
down-stairs a step at a time.
