    autoconvert: Handle reconfiguring on the srcpad
    Only upstream renegotiation was properly handled, we needed to answer
    that when downstream forces a renegotiation we take into account the
    new downstream restrictions.
    And add tests for it

    autoconvert: Remove unused elements from the bin
    Instead of letting all the elements that were added into the bin,
    add them only when strictly needed and removed them when we stop using
    With previous refactoring we are keeping them in our own hashmap in
    amy case so we can keep reusing the same elements as before.

    autoconvert: Fix the way we compare element types
    We used to conside elements that were subclassses of another
    element type as being the same (for example with videoconvertscale,
    bother videoconvert and videoscale are subclasses of videoconvertscale
    and that code was lost)

    autoconvert: Stop using qdata and unsafe weak refs
    We are still using internal pads that are not added to the bin
    but we now have a subclass and avoid qdata and weak refs as
    they are not MT safe.

    autoconvert: Add a 'factory-names' property
    Making the element more gst-launch friendly.
    This also stop trying to handle usage of ->factories atomic and instead
    use the object lock to handle them.
