All for it, put it in a lib.  I'll tell you why.  I woke up last night and 
I had been dreaming about my pretty nautilus-enabled desktop, and I had 
icons on my desktop.  Well, one of the icons was called "mp3 192 kbit js", 
and I was able to drag ANY media type containing audio to it and drop it 
there, and after some time the encoded version would appear on the 
desktop.  Well, I WANT to do that.  It's cool, it's functional, and it 
would make people go "what a great idea".  Well this morning I was 
thinking about how to do that with gst-launch, and that might work, but I 
think it might be even easier to do with partial pipeline stuff as well.  
So let's bring out the pipeline and make it more usable !

And anyone who wants to help me think about we can get those icons on my 
desktop, and ahve tigert make some pretty icons for it, please do ;) 
GStreamer is great, we're building heaps of momentum (as seen on GUADEC) 
and we need to show people what it can do.
