This looks like a design flaw. The only way to make it work correctly is
to make gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs depend on libgnomevfs2-extra. We should
also try to make this registry system-wide in the future, so that we can
trigger a rebuild.

Today it's a problem for HTTP, tomorrow it will be for DNS-SD which is
getting more and more widespread, and whatnot. Where do we set the line?
