packages moving from gconf to gsettings

Dear List,

I was just trying to update gnome-mplayer (not in fedora, but that is
irrelevant) which migrated from gconf to gsettings. The problem is, that
the standard scriptlets [1] do not run on upgrades, leaving the package
in a not working state (not running even).
I think it would be good to establish some guidelines to handle such
cases, since packages moving from gconf to gsettings are likely to
become more and more common.

Cheers,
Julian
