Har har. The file selector.
Using the new file selector was a choice that application developers
made, and the old fileselector was not a regression, it was the same
crappy one as the older releases.

The main difference is that GTK+ 2.x was evolutionary, and GStreamer's
move from 0.8.x to 0.10.x isn't. Maybe it's needed, I'm not to judge.
The problem is the regressions in playback for most filetypes (I'm not
talking about the game formats), and non-working parts of Totem like the
properties, the thumbnailer and the Mozilla plugin.

I wouldn't recommend anyone ship with the GST 0.10 backend by default if
most of those regressions aren't fixed. I really don't care for 1.0 API
stability, but I care for 1.0 stability and reliability.
