Yeah. It's a pity that both lack a plugin-system for stuff like
mp3-support. 

But if the maintainer is the same in livna and extras I don't see a big
problem -- yes, it's a problem, but has anybody a better solution? One
idea: Create a sub-repo in livna with all the packages that
replace/update/conflict with other Core or Extras packages.
