that's distro problem. they can take our tarball and split it into as many
packages as they want. just like they must be doing with gstreamer, for

i don't think we should waste time splitting packages if it would make a
harder time to our current users. also distro decisions are very volatile,
they dropped xine as fast as they included it.

the support to inform users about missing plugins is already working.
everything else is mostly political or administration stuff.
