Hi Svahl,
thanks for your vote. So it's now 4:3 for Xine backend.

So what are the required steps now? As we already missed freeze but we can 
work it out with rel engs.

I like idea of shipping both backends as proposed rdieter but set the Xine one 
as default one. But first we should fix bug with switching backends...

Distant future: I'll try to look at GStreamer backend more deeply later as I 
think it's the future - not only for Fedora but for upstream too and I hope we 
can get it at least to the the point to be comparable with Xine one. Then we 
can reconsider this decision.
