I don't think a meta-issue in bugzilla like 'make sure people come up
with all dancing all singing maultimedia framework' would have helped
anything. Yes, there are people making the 'we want it' noises, but the
fact is, they weren't there making it happening for the API freeze (or
gnome 2.0).

'go with what Martin has put in libgnome and get people to actually work
through the architectureal issue and come up with a good solution that
can be inserted into the platform'.

My estimate is we'll have it no earlier than ~ 12 months from now which
also sounds like post-gnome-2.0
