Changes to the codec install code

Registered by Michael Vogt on 2008-11-21

Debian has a new mechanism for doing codec installation. PackageKit is also capable of doing codec installs now. We should evaluate if we should keep our version (based on gnome-app-install) or switch to one of the new systems.

kamion 20090120: This looks fine now; I expanded a couple of minor things but otherwise largely left it alone. I was very confused by the mixed state of the world myself when working on the BBC totem patch (running across the Gstreamer-* fields) and will be glad to see this unified!
