I just don't have any interest in filing a bug. Sorry. I already
explained that.

Because you seem to be the one who cares about filing a bug. I don't.

Well, considering that this is a maemo list, yes, I think it's fair to
declare that "gstreamer is poo", and everyone should automatically
assume that I mean "gstreamer on maemo is poo". I'm not writing this on
any other list, and you shouldn't assume that I mean any other platform
other than maemo.
