Sigh :/

 Arnout>  Peter, is that an acceptable solution?

Hmm, I would prefer not to, but if there's no other option..

 Arnout>  Bottom line will be that nothing of Pierre-Luc's original

 Arnout>  (that's the one I need myself).  And finally, my project

 Arnout>  gstreamer-ti plugins in our project, so I may never do it
 Arnout>  after all...
