Subject: gst-player and hermes

Hello - 

Please, keep dependencies simple and necessary. Must the colorspace plugin really depend on Hermes? I don't need Hermes for nothing except this one plugin which, it seems, I have to install to make gst-player run. Can't the plugin base on a more widely in use library like X or SDL? I mean, did you see all these dependencies in the README? Think of Xine, it mainly needs itself. I really awaited gst-player because I wanted THE Gnome solution gstreamer to be my basement for multimedia instead of installing non-gnome stuff like mad, xine or whatever. Now, I can have gst-player, but only if I install such stuff I wanted to stay away from with gstreamer.
