Well not sure you gain by extreme independence, there is some truth to
the saying that if you try to please everyone you end up pleasing no
one. GStreamer has always tried to integrate ourselves with the desktop
environments  instead, and is shipping with GNOME 2.2 and have KDE
bindings available with a hope of being an integral part of KDE too at
some point.

Anyway if GNOME says 'use MAS' or 'use GStreamer' shouldn't make a big
difference for Xine I think. Making a xine plugin that outputs to
GStreamer should be rather simple. Alternatly so could you just read the
GStreamer GConf keys and make sure Xine uses the same output as
GStreamer based apps under GNOME.
