Thanks for this very useful summary. It really sounds like 0.9 is going to

Has anything been decided on how to tackle the problem of implicit rowstrides, 
plane offsets and buffer sizes for image formats? Are they going to be ...

 (a)  made part of caps (yuk)
 (b)  attached to image buffers
 (c)  taken care of by centralising format descriptions etc.
        in a plugins support library that provides the stuff that
        is now in videotestsrc, gstvideoimage, ffmpegcolorspace,
        and scattered around the code tree in form of #defines.
 (d)  a combination of (b) and (c)
 (e)  none of the above

I seem to remember there were plans to have GstBuffer stuff as a proper 
hierarchy instead of just having one universal GstBuffer. Has anything been 
decided about that?
