Add ADTS Header to Raw AAC

I've had to prepend ADTS headers on a raw AAC stream.
I found it easiest to do it right in my sink (audio sink) which wrapped 
a h/w codec, no need for a new element.  The codec needed the header so 
I just invented it and wrote it to the codec as the first packet.   I'll 
send you the code if you want.
