[gst-devel] element documentation uri as part of GstElementDetails

I guess I made this harder that it would have been, by adding
gst_element_class_set_details_simple() in the last release. WHile there is space
in struct _GstElementDetails, I can't easily add a parameter to a function
signature. Would it make sense to deprecate it and replace it with a varargs
based funtion? Any naming sugestions?
