There will be both alsa and pulseaudio gstreamer bindings in the final
release, because gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio is pulled in by some gnome
packages. I've also removed the mixer autoconfiguration to use
pulseaudio, so users will be able to choose when configuring the mixer,
as it was in previous releases.

Anyway, gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio currently lacks notifications
(xfce4-mixer isn't notified when the volume changes, so the panel plugin
is rather useless because of this bug). That's why it was reverted back
to gstreamer0.10-alsa.
