Hi Emilio,

All recent rdeps should build fine against the new version of the
library. The removed symbols shouldn't be used by anything (at least I'm
not aware of any user), the bigger problem is that some compatibility
#defines disappeared from the headers.

But I expect everything recent to build just fine. The only thing that
probably doesn't is gst-plugins-bad0.10, but that one should really just
die and disappear from the archive.

Please schedule binNMUs for everything except gst-plugins-bad0.10, that
will have to be patched a little. If any of the binNMUs fails for
whatever reason, patching the packages should be a matter of sed (I'll
check then).
