According to David, Windows doesn't allow DLLs with undefined symbols. This
means that our current linking mechanism (not linking to the core lib and
loading dependencies via gst_plugin_load) just doesn't work in Windows.
AFAICS, the only way to solve that would be a redesign of the plugin linking,
loading and initialization mechanism that would most likely not be
implementable with API compat without major headaches.
