I will not apply massive patches for PipeWire support.

@heftig: From what I can see upstream [1] the required patches to webrtc are already included.

Looking at media/webrtc/trunk/webrtc/webrtc.gni it *seems* as if it would be as easy as setting `rtc_use_pipewire = true` (and adding pipewire to the build environment).

If you had different patches in mind, please elaborate.
