good, then it's easy to port to gstreamer now :) since the average user
don't want to know what he uses. (how much i hate sentences like this,
since linux and derivates are no average users systems). no, i don't
want to argue in the air now. i am arguing about what may be good for
gnome. actually i don't care much about non-gnome users. either it's the
step towards gstreamer or we (we as in generally spoken) stick in the
old things for the next comming years. as distributor you can still
compile esound/audiofile for your customers.

and not all users want to stick with old stuff. it's hard for me to
follow you since in the gnome channel you seem to follow the way of
having esound/audiofile substituted with gstreamer yourself but on the
mailinglist i somehow get the feeling that you want to keep

dunno, are there any other opinions from people outside or am i alone
with that idea ?
