Yes, unfortunately, GStreamer still rely on G_FMT waiting a minimal
amount of time of the headers to be processed. This was how things was
created back in 2011, I could not program GStreamer for the future. If
we stop doing this, we do break GStreamer as a valid userspace
application.

This is not what I want long term, but I haven't got time to add event
support, and there is a certain amount of time (years) when this is
implemented before all the old code goes away.
