We are not asking anybody to switch "overnight". GStreamer 1 has been out 
for over 2 YEARS! (1.0.0 was released on September 24, 2012.) We are now 
finally ready to switch the whole Qt/KDE stack to GStreamer 1 in the 
upcoming Fedora 21 (i.e. over 2 years later), and QtMultimedia is the only 
missing piece. We won't be waiting for it (considering that hardly anything 
in Fedora even used QtMultimedia at all and that e.g. Phonon now supports 
ONLY GStreamer 1 in its latest release).
