Hi Steve,

I've added it to my page, but tend to continue with an interface.
One disadvantage of the GstBin idea is that a GstBin manages GstElements. That 
is a little inflexible as I would like to leave that to the polyphonic element. 
E.g. in our case a simple GObject would be enough.
For a mixer the children are possibly GstPads and so on.
