Changed again my mind, after much struggling I finally decided that
testsrc is a better name since we already have at least another "test"
filter (pixdesctest), so adding "src" can't hurt. This is also very
similar to what the GStreamer guys did (videotestsrc), so that can't
be too bad. In case we need to add more test sources, we'll find fancy
names for them (e.g. mptestsrc).

That said, I'm going to commit soon if I see no comments.
