Pity though. C is not a good language for writing applications. Sadly
there is chicken and egg situation here: only C API is available so
people do not use C++ so the packaging doesn't happen. I guess the
Debian GSteamermm packagers just "went for it" on the ground 1.0 is
better than 0.10.
There's nothing stopping you packaging it up :-)
