I was wondering why there was a wildmidi-related patch in the srpm.
Sorry if I hadn't filed a bug report. It's hard to tell what was
intended and what isn't. Would it interest you to know that on my
machine, I also have the mpeg2enc and nassink plugins enabled?

Hans, how about this for an idea: re-write the
gstreamer-plugins-bad.spec so that it puts the various plugins in
separate packages and make gstreamer-plugins-bad a virtual package that
Requires all of the plugins to pull them in?

I was going to do that for my system, privately. Unfortunately, I don't
know how to rename the main part of the sub-packages name. I was
planning on using the scheme "gstreamer-plugin-<module>" for the modules
and "gstreamer-plugins-bad" for the virtual package, but I can't figure
out how to change the root name. I'd really rather not use
"gstreamer-plugins-bad-<module>" if possible (actually, I'd rather not
use ANY filenames, if possible. I've posted several times against the
idea of storing meta-info in filenames). Any ideas?
