Hi guys,

Progress seems to go well, we should probably start working on plugins
from now (week3) on. Anyway, some small nags:

At the meet in Barcelona, I've asked for some work on a functional muxer
based on the new pure push-based system. Has there been any work on this

GstBus message notification appears to be fd-based, is that the ideal
approach? It seems (from a design point of view) to be a weird way to do
something. I haven't thought about it for too long really, so maybe this
is the only workable solution, but I still want to ask: can that be done

(If not: fine - I'm just wondering.)

(Those are read-only so far, that should be fine, in practice, right?)

That is not true, I think. We discussed it in Barcelona, and from the
discussion, it seemed you, me and Benjamin agreed on this. Anyway, I'll
try to get subtitles to work and see how this goes. If you want to make
subtitles display/muxing (or any sparse data stream) working your way,
here's your chance.

Thanks so far,
