People keep telling me that Kaffeine has uniquely awesome DVB support,
so I'd be careful with that sorta statement. Still I think demotion is
fine, Kaffeine fails to deliver user experience and platform
integration (Phonon anyone?). So even if it really has uniquely
awesome DVB support I'd argue that this is the only reason for having
it at all in the archives (looked at the bugs in launchpad recently?
... brrr....).
