I added that to the wishlist a long long time ago:

The main problem at the time, and I think it is still so, is that the
plugins use alot of SDL stuff.  They expect to get SDL user events.  We
don't really have any code to deliver key presses and mouse clicks to
plugins.  Not to mention the issues if we chain these things and they
all can handle the same key press.

I think that's why I gave up.  Perhaps worth a looking at it again.

[speaking of the wiki... perhaps the first page:
http://gstreamer.net/wiki/ shouldn't just say "What the fuck?"]
