Multifilesrc isn't on the xo, as it is in gstreamer-plugins-bad, evidently
because it hasn't been updated in a while.  Any chance we can get this
element added to sugar so we can see how it works for us?

If we add it to the build, and it works, we can then create movies from
series of images you can grab at your own discretion (perhaps in the way
done by the Web activity):

    def _get_screenshot(self):
        window = self._browser.window
        width, height = window.get_size()

        screenshot = gtk.gdk.Pixbuf(gtk.gdk.COLORSPACE_RGB, has_alpha=False,
                                    bits_per_sample=8, width=width,
        screenshot.get_from_drawable(window, window.get_colormap(), 0, 0, 0,
                                     width, height)

        screenshot = screenshot.scale_simple(style.zoom(100),

        buffer = self.get_buffer(screenshot)
        return buffer

Then we run those through a gstreamer pipline to spit out ogg files.
