Patch to add an interface_ipv4 prop to multiudpsink

Multiudpsink creates a socket through which the multicast traffic is sent. The
interface used is automatically the default system interface.

This patch introduces a new property called interface_ipv4. If set, the ipv4
address specified becomes the origin of the multicast traffic (using the
setsockopt option IP_MULTICAST_IF, and if the address is a valid interface).

I looked carefully at ipv4 vs. ipv6. However the behavior of setsockopt doesn't
seem to be consistent when it comes to checking the socket family and the data
given. This is why I explicitely call this prop "_ipv4".

I attach a patch for this feature.
