This goto out makes it look like it's an error path. So that probably
warrants a comment along the lines of 'don't reinitialise the pipeline
if it has already started'. ?

I wonder if it's better to handle the pipeline_init during _stream_start
'only' in the code path where it's the first stream ?

Then similarly, the pipeline_terminate would happen on stream_stop
'only' when it's the last stream.

Or I guess that is handled by the refcount ... Hrm it would be nice to
be able to make/keep it symmetrical somehow.
