What we could do, but really this would probably be incredibly
irresponsible, is to pack the gstreamer1 working branch of
phonon-gstreamer, according to dvratil it doesn't crash for him and he
was talking about doing an alpha or something to get some more testing

As upstream dev I'd find that somewhat offending, as distro dev it
seems like a not-quite-as-crappy solution. Roll a dice maybe. :P

ALSO, qtwebkit needs to be rebuilt with gst1 support, or without gst
support. ALSO, I think qtmultimedia4 has no gst1 support either...
