Yeah, I just think it gets messy after a while.

Yup, though there's enough cross-source usage that almost all of the
private stuff has to be in a header.

This doesn't work in the automake environment very well. The specific
reason is that the 'official' name for the headers is <gst/gst*.h>. This
convention is used in every single file in the distribution except
gst/*.[ch], which uses "gst*.h". Moving and of the header files breaks
both of these, and makes installation via automake messy.
