Everytime that a component was bypassed or passed through, it ended badly.

The ES output needs to know what to do with the side data from the demuxer. 
For instance, timeshift cannot just drop it... Packetizer needs to know what 
to do with the data from ES output. And so on.

And thus it can be passed out of band.

This patch is a design bug.
