Thanks for the feedback!

Currently the caps offered as completions are the ones printed by "gst-inspect typefindfunctions", which don't include video/x-raw*. I'll be working on more sophisticated caps completion over the next few weeks; though I think the completion script could be accepted upstream as it is now: the current functionality is useful in itself.
