[gst-devel] Small project for someone

gstparse.c is the basis for gstreamer-launch.  It has two parts: the first
takes a single string and converts it into words on boundaries appropriate
for the launch syntax.  The other takes those words and constructs an
actual pipeline.

The problem right now is that the first stage is a little screwed up.  It
doesn't take into account escaped spaces ("\ ") that are used in your
usual shell cmdline.  That means that if you tab-complete a filename with
spaces in it, you only get the first word of the filename attached to the
location argument.

It should be pretty simple to solve this, but whoever does it has to fully
understand the parsing code (about 40 lines) to do it.  I don't wanna <g>
