Sure I am. The part of glib, that is problem with GStreamer is gobject.
The point being that the glib-discussion isnt really KDE vs. GNOME, but C vs
C++, but equally religious and pointless.
The problem with gstreamer, is that the design choices are by no means
agnostic. It's designed to fit in and fill some of the voids in the
GNOME-environment, and while it could be used _from_ KDE, it could never work
a part of, as I does things in it is own way (porting gstreamer completly to
KDE would _proberbly_ be a lovely project taking up less than 50% of the
current code, but being impossible to comaintain with original gstreamer).
