To be fair, there was some discussion with regard to gst.

A lot of the FreeBSD users really want a web browser by default in
GNOME.  They see KDE has one, and wonder where GNOME's is.

By lowering the thread[0]'s stack size, I got this working on FreeBSD,
so I drop my previous contention.  However, I'm not sure how other
platform's threading implementations will take to it.

This is a cool widget.  Some of our users have asked how to make the
gnome-terminal like the OS X terminal.  vte does it by anti-aliasing the
terminal widget itself.

I know why you're doing this, but damn!  I really like gcalctool. 
However, I disagree with "depends on GStreamer."  I never had GStreamer
installed when I built this calculator.
