Revisiting the decision: grilo-plugins is required by only 3 packages: totem, gnome-music and rhythmbox. All of these depend on lots of libraries that are turned into optdepends for grilo-plugins.

As someone using grilo-plugins will likely install it for the plugins included, I decided to move all library dependencies from optdepends to depends. This reduces optdepends to two packages (tracker, dleyna-server) and simplifies dependency tracking for packages using grilo-plugins.
