Clock activity (sugar-clock) and Speak (sugar-speak) use gstreamer only to
do text to speech,
Memorize (sugar-memorize) use it to do text to speech and to play sounds.
Would be good use the text to speech feature included in sugar toolkit gtk3
then you don't need port the activities again in the future.
Record port to Gst 1.0 was tried in the past, the main problem was
that plugins to support hardware decoding in some XO models
were not ported to Gst 1.0
