That's exactly why I voted for Phonon-Xine in the meeting. ;-)
"All the world must use GStreamer" == politics
Phonon-Xine is considered by Phonon upstream to be the better technology.
By one developer who admits that Phonon is dying slowly and not developed
anymore ;-) No, I don't want one multimedia framework rule them all but
currently it's the best what we have (I'm not talking about Phonon backend -
just GStreamer). In case of better framework in the future I believe I'd be
one of first supporters (even it could bring troubles to Fedora).
