Thank you, this is helpful.

Thank you.
This is helpful not only for me, but for many Debian users.

Indeed, there are reverse dependencies.

Anyhow, can you please try to temporarily forcibly remove it for
testing purposes, to help fix this bug in Debian:

  # dpkg --force-all --purge gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad


(That's what I did to confirm #681652 -- I reinstalled immediately
after testing, no problem. Sorry, I should have made it clear right
from the beginning what exact steps were needed to test this.)
