Description of problem:
The current gstreamer-plugins package install two arts related plugins.
Thus the package requires arts - which requires qt.

For people (such as myself) who do not run any software that uses qt
and will never use the arts plugins in gstreamer, gstreamer-plugins
with the arts plugins causes qt to be needed on the system (it can be
nodeps removed, but then it is re-installed whenever yum updates the
gstreamer-plugins package)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm --test -e arts

Actual Results:  error: Failed dependencies:
        libartsc.so.0 is needed by (installed)
        libartsflow.so.1 is needed by (installed)
        libartsflow_idl.so.1 is needed by (installed)
        arts is needed by (installed) gstreamer-plugins-0.8.5-1.i386

Additional info:

If these could be packaged in a gstreamer-plugins-arts package, then
qt would not be a required package for virtually every install scheme

I understand it's annoying, but it's too much work and too fragile to break up
the packages, especially considering trying to maintain backwards compatibility.
 Disk space is cheap :)
