Well, gstreamer-properties is a GNOME frontend to gstreamer-gconf and
depends on a the GNOME libraries.  GStreamer, on the other hand, is
desktop- and platform-independent, and should not depend on GNOME.

For example, if KDE or Mac OS X apps use gstreamer, then KDE or Mac
configuration tools would be used instead of the gnome-media tool.

For now, the only desktop-independent way to configure gstreamer-gconf
is with gconftool-2.
