The F-12 package is also split, but the -devel subpackage works for all
of the other packages. Will have a closer look if that changed for F-13.

Yes, good idea. Remember the 0.x format for the release number.

Ok, here are answers from my experience, though you can probably get
more authoritative answers on the mailing list:
1) Yes, all normal libraries go to /usr/lib. Subdirs in libdir are
generally only used e.g. for plugins. Libs you link to regularly go to
the libdir.
1a) and 2) I'd consider this a bug/bad choice in the upstream project.
Is it possible, does it make sense and could they be convinced to follow
the "standard" behavior?

Ok, maybe it's not yet in the buildroot, so either the Player package
has to go stable first (please all help and mark the package is working
at https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F11/FEDORA-2009-11127) or I
need to request tagging. Let me know when koji builds do not work, yet,
or pull in older Player versions (check root.log).
