This essentially means that you want to keep a reference to the child
element. So just store it in a local variable or field and Vala will
increment the reference count automatically. It will currently just call
g_object_ref, not gst_object_ref, but that should work fine, we could
change that to gst_object_ref for GstObjects.
Thanks, are you also planning on providing a function in vala to
increase ref count. Introducing another variable so you can increase
the refcount is a bit hacky if you ask me.
