Yeah, slow response, sue me. ;)

Who thinks deb plugins should be renamed to this scheme?  Right now I
just have gstreamer-<pluginname> but gst-plugin-<pluginname> is just as
easy.  Eh, whatever...

I vote we change 'gstplay' to 'gst-player'.  It's a bit more consistent
with the rest of the modules and I never really understood why arik
didn't like that name.  In any case, it's kind of confusing with
gstoldplayer, gstplay, gstmediaplay, libgstsomethingplay, etc.
