IMHO it is absolutely fine to have platform dependent sins and sources. Thats
what the gstreamer API is for (among other things ;-)) - decoupling the
application from the platform. So on Linux we have Alsa-Sources/Sinks, on
Windows e.g. DirectX onea and on the Mac CoreAudio, etc.
The app just uses the sinks the user preferes
