gst: Use GError boxed type from GObject 2.25.2 instead of our own if possible
Should we add this into this core release?

I don't think this is particularly urgent, is it?
Besides, strictly speaking there is an element of ABI breakage here, since the type name changes and the old name disappears. I don't know of any code that looks up the type by name though, and unlike GstDate it's not serialisable, so it should probably be fine.
Dunno. The problem arises when people start assuming that GST_TYPE_G_ERROR == G_TYPE_ERROR (and there is no way to check that equality other than runtime).
I'm not sure if people will ever assume this, but if they do, we'd better have it working right from day one.
