    Original commit message from CVS:
    * gst-libs/gst/utils/Makefile.am:
    * gst-libs/gst/utils/base-utils.h:
    * gst-libs/gst/utils/install-plugins.c:
    (gst_install_plugins_context_set_xid),
    (gst_install_plugins_context_new),
    (gst_install_plugins_context_free),
    (gst_install_plugins_get_helper),
    (gst_install_plugins_spawn_child),
    (gst_install_plugins_return_from_status),
    (gst_install_plugins_installer_exited),
    (gst_install_plugins_async), (gst_install_plugins_sync),
    (gst_install_plugins_return_get_name),
    (gst_install_plugins_installation_in_progress):
    * gst-libs/gst/utils/install-plugins.h:
    API: add API for applications to initiate installation of missing
    plugins, ie. gst_install_plugins_async() primarily.
    Based on libgimme-codec by Ryan Lortie.
    * configure.ac:
    Add --with-install-plugins-helper configure option so distros can specify
    the path of the helper script or program to call when plugin installation
    is requested (distros: please do any argument munging in this helper
    script instead of patching GStreamer to pass arguments differently
    to another program directly).
    * docs/libs/gst-plugins-base-libs-docs.sgml:
    * docs/libs/gst-plugins-base-libs-sections.txt:
    Build and document new API.
    * tests/check/libs/utils.c: (result_cb),
    (test_base_utils_install_plugins_do_callout), (GST_START_TEST),
    (libgstbaseutils_suite):
    Some simple checks for the new API.
