Once we have written code defining all the parts of the plugin, we need to
write the plugin_init() function. This is a special function, which is
called as soon as the plugin is loaded, and must return a pointer to a newly
allocated GstPlugin structure. This structure contains the details of all
the facilities provided by the plugin, and is the mechanism by which the
definitions are made available to the rest of the &GStreamer; system. Helper
functions are provided to help fill the structure: for future compatability
it is recommended that these functions are used, as documented below, rather
than attempting to access the structure directly.

Note that the information returned by the plugin_init() function will be
cached in a central registry. For this reason, it is important that the same
information is always returned by the function: for example, it must not
make element factories available based on runtime conditions. If an element

can only work in certain conditions (for example, if the soundcard is not
being used by some other process) this must be reflected by the element
being unable to enter the READY state if unavailable, rather than the plugin
