If you don't want to pass a GError into the constructor then you can
split creation into another method:

  void gst_media_play_init2 (GstMediaPlay *mp, GError **error);

However, i don't really see what this gains.  A media play is pretty
useless if the pipeline can't be constructed.  What's wrong with
adding the GError to the constructor?
