Bug#482796: gstreamer0.10-plugins-good: Add pulseaudio as an ALSA alternative?

Package: gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
Version: 0.10.8-2
Severity: wishlist

I'm using gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio for sound playback.

However, because gstreamer0.10-plugins-good depends on gstreamer0.10-plugins-alsa, I have to have the ALSA plugin installed even 
though I never use it.

Could gstreamer0.10-plugins-good depend on pulseaudio as an ALSA alternative?

Like this:
  gstreamer0.10-plugins-alsa | gstreamer0.10-plugins-pulseaudio
