The (a) part appears to be done:

#647485 [n|  |  ] [gst-plugins-base0.10] [PATCH] please transaction gst-plugins-base0.10 to multiarch
#647486 [n|  |  ] [gst-plugins-good0.10] [PATCH] please transaction gst-plugins-good0.10 to multiarch
#647487 [n|  |  ] [gst-plugins-bad0.10] [PATCH] please transaction gst-plugins-bad0.10 to multiarch
#647488 [n|  |  ] [gst-plugins-ugly0.10] [PATCH] please transaction gst-plugins-ugly0.10 to multiarch
#647490 [n|  |  ] [gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg] [PATCH] please transaction gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg to multiarch

Fixing (b) is trivial, I can provide an updated patch if you want. Since we are
moving the .la files anyways, perhaps it would be a good moment to remove them completly,
closing #633319 at the same time?
