Oh, I see :-) That's a great idea, but the prerequisite would be some
sort of a stable release of dataflow... as it's being re-written, it
might take a little time to get to that point.

I remember looking at GStreamer, and IIRC it gave me the impression
that one could not build a C++ - only GStreamer app. I could be
wrong, though - perhaps you can share your experience on this?
