Name things that you can do with this approach but GStreamer doesn't
allow you to do by design.
If there are valid things, we should consider these problems. If there
aren't, all functionality that currently accesses raw audio data should
be rewritten as gst plug-ins.
The bottom line is that any code you're writing to process audio outside
of GStreamer is only useful for marlin. While any code you write using
a plug-in is useful for any gstreamer app.
