So how about we try something like I've sketched up in the attached

Rhythmbox can then say that it can handle all file types given by the
registered "org.gstreamer.Audio" handler, which will return something


And these types can be munged in with the rest of the types listed in
the Desktop Entry.

One problem here is that GStreamer types != MIME types, even if they
look pretty similar in many cases. You'll need some kind of mapping in
the handler.
