We can write unmodular code if that's the best solution.
We can have a file in Emacs that compiles using the GStreamer
header files -- perhaps syntactically transformed -- so it can
access this data structure and do what we want it to do.

We can write it so that it would be a reasonable added interface for
GStreamer, and ask them to install it.  But we will have a fallback if
they choose not to.
