gst_bin_get_by_name with a prefix?

is there anything like gst_bin_get_by_name() but that accepts a prefix?
Searching strictly by name falls short really soon, and given that the
default behavior is to add a number after the element names ("mp4mux0"),
it would make sense that there is already a function like that, but I
cannot find anything similar.

being able to find by prefix would overcome changes such as this:

which breaks finding the elements by name, something that gets done very
commonly in GStreamer, such as in here:

I guess it's possible to just iterate manually over all bin elements and
check the name prefixes, but it would be handy of such function already
existed somewhere in GStreamer...
