GStreamer exists for playing sounds. Putting functionality for
encryption or playing sounds into GIO itself would pull in a lot of
code which would not be used by most projects which depend on GIO.

Instead, you should be looking at adding functions to those libraries
which take a GFile as a parameter.

Are you looking to fill a specific gap in functionality for a project
you’re working on?
