Hi hi,

The current iface implementation can be found in
It looks quite good. What is misses to be commited is still a good name.
Some recap:

What does the interface provide?
1.) it tells the application that this element handles multiple children
2.) it allows to control the properties of the children (recursively)

What name suggestions do we had already?

- clashes with function-names such as gst_object_get_parent().

- not taking property access into account

- not taking property access into account

- not taking property access into account

- the bin is a container, the iface only adds a management view



- a bit long ;)

@maintainers, please put a short note into bugzilla, wheter this can be commited 
(when a name has settled) or what you'll like to see fixed/changed before.
