Suggested options include:
A) Consider the new ABI to be "right". Recompile every package that

subclasses GstElement), unless it has already been compiled
against GLib 2.32 on every architecture.
+: Every frequently-uploaded package, including large ones like
Webkit, Qt and the Mozilla suite, have already been compiled
against GLib 2.32 in practice anyway. The most significant
exception that I noticed is GStreamer 0.10, which is where we
noticed this ABI break: the problem is that "core" GStreamer
not been recompiled since, but some packages that subclass its
-: Binaries built against squeeze's GLib on the affected
architectures will break, in relatively rare circumstances.
We have to recompile up to 227 source packages.
I think this is basically what was suggested in
<20121130125125.GS5634@radis.cristau.org>, with the negative point being
addressed by adding Breaks: for those cases we can identify.
