k, i'm rather busy with my graduation project (of which i'll inform you shortly, as it uses gstreamer a lot once more), so i'll postpone this. someday i'll check out the (de)serialize codebase and see how i can get what i want...

i see. it's probably not even so bad for commandline use (you can just print a warning and set a 'default' value, i agree that's ugly though), but i can imagine this would get me into trouble on the long run (probably does, already :)

alright. i'll come back :) the dirty hack does it for me now.

thanks for the clarification.
