The FSF argument is that Totem is a derivative of gstreamer. The LGPL
would then require Totem to be under restrictions that are not present
in the GPL. This presents a conflict, so instead gstreamer is treated as
if it's GPLed. I don't think anyone would claim that the library is a
derivative work of the application that uses it.
