Ok, gstreamer 0.5.2 is close to done and out the door.

Having thought about it, though, it's not clear to me what Iain is 
blocking on exactly.

If the issue is "GStreamer needs to have it's final release version, 
0.6.0, because of pkg-config", then that is not what 0.5.2 is doing.

0.5.2 is made because apparently Gnome wants a close-to-final-release.

GStreamer 0.6.0 will be made this weekend.

I recall a discussion I had with Iain re: the pkg-config stuff, so that's 
why I suddenly realized that might be what he was blocking his release on, 
and if that is the case, that'll still be blocked till this weekend.
So that might not be what you guys are wanting.

Let me know soon enough, I'm going to release :)
