Missing plugins

Functions to create, recognise and parse missing-plugins messages for applications and elements.

Missing-plugin messages are posted on the bus by elements like decodebin or playbin if they can't find an appropriate source element or decoder element. The application can use these messages for two things:

Applications may also create missing-plugin messages themselves to install required elements that are missing, using the install mechanism mentioned above.
