But again - the REAL solution is to stop rebuilding the whole 
gst-plugins-bad/ugly saga, and just provide the
addon packages

usr at box:~> rpm -ql gstreamer-plugins-bad-codecs 

The plugins above are the only ones that users need to get from 
packman, not the main gstreamer-plugins-bad package nor its many 
sub-packages and typelibs and whatnot.
And they can get only those today, by just installing the 
gst-bad/ugly-orig-addon packages, but as time have shown us, this is to 
difficult to understand. Particullary when the going advice is to 
zypper dup --from packman.
