To avoid the adding and removing, I've been using the intervideosrc/sink
elements to get blank (black) frames downstream when parts of a pipeline
are being modified.  I don't think it's the most gstreamer way of doing
things, but it has sort-of worked.  I may hit a performance bottleneck down
the road, though.
