The applications don't need updating, the

For some reason people *want* to see a GStreamer with the numbers 1 and
0.  So they will want to use a gstreamer-1.0.pc file.

Okay.  In that case, you could include a symlink from gstreamer-1.0.pc
-> gstreamer-0.10.pc, and have all the old applications continue to
build correctly and have a new version number in the pkg-config
package name, right?

It just seems crazy to break compatibility for something as small as this.
