openSUSE gstreamer packages:

- gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base
# Thu Mar 25 12:28:05 CET 2010 - vuntz at opensuse.org
# - Split the gnomevfs plugin in a gstreamer-0_10-plugin-gnomevfs
#   subpackage to not require gnome-vfs (which is deprecated) with
#   this package.

- gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good
# Thu Mar 25 12:32:58 CET 2010 - vuntz at opensuse.org
# - Split the hal plugin in a gstreamer-0_10-plugin-hal subpackage to
#   not require hal (which is deprecated) with this package. Fix
#   bnc#590715.

Since the splitted packages have "supplements" dependencies they try
to install (overwriting) also when gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base and
gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good are installed from Packman. Could Packman
packages also be splitted to avoid problems?
In fact, to avoid future problems, wouldn't be better if Packman
packages would be links to openSUSE packages and maintain them there
with some build conditionals like is done with Xine?
