[maemo-developers] GStreamer playbin2 and "Silent" mode on the N900

When the N900 is in "silent" mode, music played through playbin2
using GStreamer is also muted, so one has to switch to the
"General" profile in order to listen to music. The built-in media
player is not affected by this, so is there a way to set my playbin2
to not be muted when the phone has the "silent" profile activated?

In my case, it's a third-party media player, so the user pretty likely
wants to listen to music when using it, independent of the selected
profile (Silent, General).
