Following up on this, I've created a clone and broken down everything
into small commits. The port can be found here[1] in the 1.0-porting

If you choose to compile this branch on your system, please make sure
that any multimedia apps that are directly/indirectly linked to
gstreamer-0.10 must be recompiled to link against gstreamer-1.0 ( most
notably, dragon is indirectly linked to gstreamer-0.10 via QtWebkit
and Amarok links directly to gstreamer-0.10 )
