Hi Akos,
Your software looks nice, great stuff! I will leave answering your
specific technical questions to others, but here is a reply to some of
the things you raise.

Any chance you could license these elements under the LGPL instead of
the GPL? Being LGPL is a pre-requsite for us to consider including them
in one of the upstream GStreamer plugins modules.

Thanks :)

Of course, I make sure you get added.

Yeah, we are very strongly focusing on 0.9 atm as the goal is to get
0.10 out before Christmas, so I would at least take a look at 0.9 if I
where you to get a feel for how it stands in regards to your needs.

There is a porting chapter in the Plugins Writers Guide.
