Hmm, I am curious how this has spread so far in so little time? :)
It's true that I came up with this on the xine-devel list, but this  
is a very long-term idea. xine always had some loose connections to  
the gstreamer project through commonly used libraries. And while I  
personally expect both projects to move closer together in the  
future, right now there will not be something one would call a  
"merge". Of course things may look different a year or two from now,  
but there are no plans to radically change the media landscape in  
Linux. Just think of this as a long-term target.
