  i think i see the problem -- i'm pretty sure i need to enable
rpmfusion-free-rawhide as well, no?  a number of the dependency issues
appear to be rpmfusion packages that aren't being updated, but their
dependencies *are* going to be updated, causing a mismatch like:

Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package
gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.13-7.fc11.x86_64 (installed)
