Is that the right thing even if you have multiple GStreamer versions
installed, I wonder?  And why is GST_PLUGIN_PATH not sufficient and you

Also, this line doesn't appear in my .guix-profile/etc/profile.  Why is
that?  In general I think having to rely on people to add lines to their
profile is a bad idea.  Might be necessary, of course, but sounds like a
bad idea compared to just sourcing the profile file.

No real opinion, but some questions :)  The experience installing
rhythmbox is pretty bad though.
