for *not* changing the name

* we have the domain name
* we have the sourceforge name
* some of the files still say "GNOME-Streamer", sheesh
* we are related to G-projects, the glib object system
* our g can stand for g <g>

if anything, change to 'gst'. but i suggest instead just changing the
package names. it's already libgst. except call 'gstreamer' gst-core
