I personally don't care at all anymore about GStreamer 0.10 and
applications should consider porting to 1.x as soon as possible
anyway :) 0.10 is no longer supported by upstream since quite a while.

I'm not sure how useful that is, considering that 0.10 is no longer
maintained. Maybe we should just let the 0.10 version disappear instead?

What are your plans for subtitleeditor to upgrade to 1.x?

Feel free to add yourself as co-maintainer, I can also add your to
pkg-gstreamer if you want to help maintaining the mm bindings.

I'll try to take a look at your changes over the next days, but let's
try to find an approach to get rid of 0.10 ASAP instead of wasting more
time on it :)
