Isn't the fact that we plan to include both volume controls in GNOME
transition phase enough? Those distros who like PA adopt the new one,
the ones who don't continue to use the old one. Distros who are unable
to decide have to ship both, but hey that's what you get when you
cannot decide.

Given that some people don't want to adopt PA anytime soon (such as
the Solaris folks) I don't think we will be able to remove the old Gst
mixer any time soon either.
