Split gavl plugins into separate package

Cheese is on the live CD, and depends on gnome-video-effects, which in turn depends on frei0r-plugins and that depends on gavl. Although Cheese uses frei0r-plugins, it does not use any of the gavl plugins. If those are split off into a separate package, gnome-video-effects could depend only on frei0r-plugins and the live image would get a bit smaller.
I made the change and did a scratch build in Koji which worked fine: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=5902734
The frei0r-plugins-gavl package is about 3 MB when installed, so this should save a useful amount of space.
I'm not sure to understand why this package (frei0r-plugins) found itself at the edge of the boundary of each LiveCD.
If you don't want frei0r-plugins, please disable the requirement of the package.
The plugins are meant to be dlopened, so it shouldn't be a hard requirement.
I also find completely irrelevant to consider gnome-video-effects as part of any LiveCD (it shouldn't be a problem on DVD or USB).
So I'm about to reject this change along with the previous opencv split.
