It would be nice if we could use this with Type::create() functions too,
auto track = AudioTrackPrivateGStreamer::create(...);
Unfortunately the type would be PassRefPtr, not RefPtr, which would
probably not be what we want. Maybe we could do it by just removing
PassRefPtr and adding a move constructor to RefPtr?
