Not really, but the main problem was that there was no way for plugins
to attach message handlers to the bus.  I've just committed a small change
to make the bus emit the 'message' signals you were trying to use
(commit 535c2437).

Other things:  it's easier to use the 'filter' interface for this, as you
don't have to create a sink element too; you need to wait for the filter/tee to
actually be added to the pipeline, using the 'filter-inserted' signal; and you
need to walk up the pipeline structure to find the top level bus to process

Here's a simple plugin that adds a spectrum element into the pipeline and
prints the data (note that you need to run rhythmbox with '-D py' for python
print statements to show up):
