This is a very bad idea. If caca allows writing into a buffer that we
can embed into X, then cacasink should have a source pad which we can
connect to ximagesink. Using an interface for this is, well, just not a
good idea.

If you think this is possible, possibly with as much code sharing as
possible, I'd prefer this solution.
