In GStreamer, a plugin represent a shared object. Each plugin can
contain one of more features. An element, is a feature.

Just make sure that you plugin name (third parameter of
GST_PLUGIN_DEFINE and by convention the shared object name) differ from
your feature name, that second parameter of gst_element_register()
call. After that, gst-inspect-1.0 will be able to give you the details
of both independently. The problem is that gst-inspect-1.0 uses that
same namespace for both plugins and features, it's not ideal, but it's
easy to workaround.
