Are you coding the RIFF element as a standalone, or as a plugin to be
paired with a specific parser?  My thought was to change the loading code
so a WAV parser would attempt to load the RIFF plugin as a supporting
library, not even a GstObject at all.  Common routines could be provided,
along the lines of the _new function above, such that the WAV element
could indeed consist of a chain() function that just calls
gst_riff_chain() and relies on the callback to process things.
