multifile: add support for reading filenames from a list file
Submitted by Jonathan Matthew

After watching someone on IRC struggling with multifilesrc for the nth time, I figured it'd be easier to use in some cases if you could give it a file containing a list of source files, rather than having to number the files sequentially.
What I'm attaching is a quick hack based on multifilesrc. It might be worth considering adding the functionality to multifilesrc rather than creating a new element, or sharing the common code (which is most of it) some other way.
