You might take a look at the WAV code.  There's a whole bunch of stuff in
there to handle RIFF files, which AFAICT is all AVI files are.  I've
thought of putting the generic RIFF code either in a library or a plugin.
The thing with a plugin is that symbol matching gets hard.  Probably what
we should do is have glib do lazy loading, and plugins that require others
can explicitely request that they be loaded.  Thus a RIFF plugin could be
reused by both AVI and WAV, even though it isn't an actual element.
