added some thoughts about scheduler doing a little profiling on elements

$Id$
Could schedulers do a little profiling?
* scheduler keeps a list of usecs the process function of each element was
running
* process functions are: loop, chain, get
* scheduler keeps a sum of all times
* each gst-element has a profile_percentage field
* when going to play
* scheduler sets sum and all usecs in the list to 0
* when handling an element
* remember old usecs t_old
* take time t1
* call elements processing function
* take time t2
* t_new=t2-t1
* sum+=(t_new-t_old)
* profile_percentage=t_new/sum;
* should the percentage be averaged?
* profile_percentage=(profile_percentage+(t_new/sum))/2.0;
* the profile_percentage shows how much CPU time the element uses in relation
to the whole pipeline
