What about making use of the GstPreset interfeace. Implement that in your plugin
and you are set. If you don't override the default implementation, it will use
GKeyfile (ini type of files for the presets).

I'd really like to have a way to select presets from gst-launch as well. There
are related TODO comments in the source.
