Asac works on a kind of gnome-plugin-install based on gnome-app-install
for Ubuntu.

Gstreamer improved a lot recently and it does support gnome-vfs.

I am going to remove the Ubuntu specific parts of the latest
update-manager soon, so that we can update the Debian package.
Furthermore mvo did a great job in providing a dist-upgrade (with

extended for Debian. Perhaps it is also worth to look at his update unit
