Xpra: Ticket #1275: Debian Wheezy and Ubuntu Precise support in 1.0

Thanks to the private ffmpeg libraries (#1256), we can support some really old Debian distros with only minor fixes:

It is usable, and better than being stuck with the 0.14.x branch.

Remaining issues:

The sound crashes are fixed in r13194 (incomplete for centos, see #1267). r13196 re-adds gstreamer 0.10 as dependency for wheezy and precise. Build fixes: r13234 + r13235, relax opengl compat: r13232 + r13233 + r13236, rpath fix: r13238.

sound error with wheezy client

Despite a fix (r13244 / #1274) to not try to use pulseaudio if it isn't running, sound still doesn't work on wheezy: attachment/ticket/1275/autoaudiosink-err.txt. The pipeline goes from NULL to READY to PAUSED and then the sound subprocess exits. And I don't have time to chase this.

Status: all versions from Debian Wheezy / Ubuntu Precise onwards should work, have opengl enabled (bar greylist / blacklist), without too many warnings.

The version has been pushed out and I haven't seen any complaints about this yet, so closing.
