Yes, but I have no time.  I want to use gstreamer as an user, without
caring too much about its internals and its development. My project
is an audio CD player that supports at least all free file formats.
I'll buy and EPIA motherboard and a hi-end sound card for that. Once
the cd player software will work fine, I'll start developing a plugin
to apply some effects and I will learn enough to be able to help
hunting bugs. I don't want to spend time for gstreamer itself right
now because my project is going on slow enough.

I'm currently stuck with these major problems:

- Spider reusability (ok, I'll look at libgstplay).
- Seeking.
- Random audio skips with alsasink (I'm trying to narrow
this down before filing a bug report because it's strange.
Alsasink sometimes stops the substream, sets again the
hw_params and restarts the substream. Perhaps is it an
incorrect out-of-data condition detection ?).
