I'm not sure how to best answer the question, so I'll just explain what
I'm doing and perhaps that will do.  The uris are daap://, and I'd
prefer to keep them that way so that anything that is interested is
aware that these are not regular http uris.  While they do need to go to
the playbin as http uris, there is no reason why we can't (correct me if
I'm wrong) keep them as daap uris everywhere else.  I think the simplest
way to handle this is to let the pre_open (again, maybe not the best
name) function be responsible for setting the uri.

James said all he needs for cdda is your got_source function, so I guess
I'd be the only one needing this special functionality.  If people think
it makes more sense to let the uris be http ones everywhere, then thats
fine by me.
