This is because this package was split out without any kind of
transition planning.

Dear GStreamer maintainers: please don’t introduce such large-scale
changes without proper transition planning. You’ve broken dozens of
packages, and you’ve even let this brokenness propagate to testing.
While this change was certainly needed for KDE users, it should not have
been handled this way.

Please make gstreamer0.10-plugins-good temporarily depend on
gstreamer0.10-gconf, and remove this dependency only when reverse
dependencies have been fixed, with appropriate Breaks added.
