Bug#679527: gnash-common: Why does gnash-common Recommends: gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3?

Package: gnash-common
Version: 0.8.10-6
Severity: minor


I wonder if it is really necessary that gnash-common pulls in gstreamer0.10

MP3 playback should work flawlessly (at least I listened to many MP3 files with
gstreamer-based apps and never had the Fluendo plugin installed) with the
libmad plugin of gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, which is BTW also among the
recommended packages.
