 I didn't think, I don't think this is terribly ugly.

 As I explained, I noticed the problem when I took up the packages, and
 I thought it was too late for gstreamer 0.6 (called gstreamer) which
 was already gone from the archive.  Hence, I only fixed the 0.8 series,
 I didn't want to fix 0.6 stuff in the 0.8 series...
