I thought it would be a nice idea if people could set categories from
which the spider should take plugins.

We still need a way to stop the spider from constructing pipelines such as
systemencode ! mpegdemux ! mad
to get audio from a video stream without audio or
mpegdemux ! mad ! goom ! colorspace
to get video from any mpeg stream (happens, because mpegdemux supplies the
audio pad first).

It would be nice if I could restrict the spider to "filters/decoders" or
whatever and only get decoding plugins.
