That wouldn't really help, would it? What are xine-lib and GStreamer,
what do they play? The xine-lib backend is fine for power-users to
choose (or their admins make the choice for them), but it's not
something you'd want to present to users.

I'll mention it once again: I don't want to see this sort of dialogue in
Totem, or in the default installation. After that, feel free to discuss
implementation and wording for addition in another add-on application.

No, as there's no MPEG-2 video decoder in Fedora's xine-lib (and if
there is, it shouldn't be there).
