Man, you've just shed new light on bug reports. I now see the whole concept
of "bug-squashing party" with a new eye. This is illuminating !

Actually, amarok is more about being feature-packed than being
engine-neutral. The support for multiple engine is just one of those
features. For their defence, the gst0.10 engine did lack some important
fonctionality like streaming (webradios). They got fed up with bugreports
on incomplete engines, and decided to only include engine with a set
of "necessary" features. That left out gst0.10.

Anyway, I don't care anymore, I have a bottle of Jose Cuervo Especial.
