* __tim ponders removing the xml registry
<bilboed> __tim, hm.... while I'd be totally in favor of that ... wouldn't it
be a regression ?
<__tim> bilboed, why?
<bilboed> being able to use the registry as a xml file could be considered part
of our offering
<bilboed> removing that equals removing a feature
<__tim> true, it could be
<bilboed> just playing the devil's advocate here
<__tim> but I think that's complete crack, and was never implied anywhere
<__tim> and if someone does that, it's broken and they should fix their stuff
<__tim> in fact, I'd argue that we have gst-xmlinspect, so there's was 0 reason
to parse the xml registry directly
<__tim> bilboed, oh, and also, we've already regressed in that we've migrated
to the binary registry, so now we're only talking about people who have control
over their gstreamer build, and they had enough transition time imo
<__tim> (they had to do --disable-binary-registry or so already for things not
to break)
<__tim> but now you've put me off, bah
<bilboed> fine fine, way more arguments in favor than against. Do it ! Case
closed :)
