Split GStreamer plugins into groups of functionally similar packages

When deploying for Windows, GStreamer gives the option to use Merge Modules ( … ge-modules) in which plugins are grouped by their function. For example, gstreamer-codecs contains codecs, gstreamer-net contains support for network protocols, gstreamer-playback contains support for playback, etc. This gave me an idea.

Instead of packaging a collection of plugins as a single package, we could turn the existing packages into split-packages, each plugin could have its own separate package and the package for a collection (e.g. gst-plugins-good) could be just a meta package. This way, individual plugins could belong to different gstreamer-* package groups.

This would, IMHO, simplify things a lot for both the users and the packagers.
