Good point. Avoiding the GStreamer dependency is significant. I suspect 
we have more projects besides digital signage that disable both of 
these build flags, so it would probably be convenient for Igalia if 
these flags were retained. Although it is annoying to see how often we 
get bug reports about the ENABLE_VIDEO=OFF build being broken, I 
suppose that in itself is evidence that the flag is in regular use.

I'm sure we can still identify a large number of other build flags to 
be removed. There is a lot of low-hanging fruit here!
