There's phonon-backend-gst which is supposed to obsolete that pkg
(if the Obsoletes/Provides tags in it are correct).
The rawhide broken deps checker cannot detect this as it no longer sees
the old phono-backend-gstreamer. (and I think the repoclosure version that
is used doesn't handle obsoletes yet anyway)

Conflicts are not dependency issues and are not checked for.
