And here's the first bug that crept into the release: I forgot to
update the lib version. So if you build a package for whatever distro,
please include http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=swfdec/swfdec.git;a=commitdiff;h=4d537f9d5ffd60578c9beed9a58a3be9ee172cba
I'll make sure 0.5.2 behaves as if this libversion where used in 0.5.1
