Not so fond of this. IMHO:

- errors should be notified via the GError *

- missing plugins should be (are already?) notified via dedicated API

- quirks should not be notified to the app via GST_ELEMENT_{ERROR,WARNING,INFO}
- these are meant for translated messages shown to the user

- quirks should be notified to the app via new dedicated messages which contain
more structure (codes/categories/tags) so can be handled programmatically if

- even if quirks/recoverable parsing errors are currently notified via
GST_ELEMENT_{WARNING,INFO}, this isn't really right IMHO and should be replaced
by a better mechanism.

Not that I'm against adding this API to retrieve ERROR/WARNING/INFO messages
per se, it's just that it seems to me that it's being suggested for the wrong
