[Speex-dev] Plain Speex, or GStreamer?

I wasn't able to find anything in the list archives, please forgive me  
if this question has been asked before...

Our app needs to support multiple media types, so GStreamer would seem  
to be the obvious choice.  However, voice quality is paramount for  
us.  Are there any disadvantages to using the Speex plugin for  
GStreamer as opposed to directly coding to the Speex API?  In  
particular, does the GStreamer element fully support the echo- 
cancellation and jitter-buffer features of Speex?  Are there any other  
pitfalls that a naive developer (and new to both APIs) should be aware  

Many thanks,
