You could do:

> static GType mad_emphasis_type = 0;
> static GEnumValue mad_emphasis = <value omitted>;

Problem is, that the GOnce stuff wants values of type gsize... good news
is that GType actually is a gsize :)
Another problem is, that GOnce is GLib 2.14 stuff and thus can't be used
unless we update the requirements to that version which wasn't done in
the past already because of backward compatibility reasons.
Also GST_BOILERPLATE should probably be changed too then, no idea...
