possible patch

The yum backend of PackageKit requires an exact provides match. This makes it so that:

/usr/libexec/pk-gstreamer-install 'gstreamer|1.0|totem|MPEG-1 Layer 3 (MP3) decoder|decoder-audio/mpeg, mpegaudioversion=(int)1, mpegversion=(int)1, layer=(int)3, parsed=(boolean)true'

doesn't find anything because the provides line in the rpm (gstreamer1-plugins-bad-freeworld) package does not contain the mpegaudioversion=1 string. The absence of the mpegaudioversion in the provides line however signals that the plugin can do any mpegaudio version and should thus be considered for installation.

Currently there is a workaround in the gstreamer1-plugins-base package to filter out the mpegaudioversion before calling packagekit. 

The attached patch implements superset search in PackageKit when looking up available rpms.
