At some point the 2005.0 profile will be deprecated, but not yet.
Basically yeah, they're almost the same, just forcing "gstreamer" USE
since it's a better backend for totem than xine atm and just minor stuff
like that - nothing earth shattering and no special considerations are
needed to upgrade.
Real work is being done in the dev/ profiles and no, i wouldn't
recommend switching blindly there. I'll be posting experimental stages
to use against that with a brief comment on what's new, what breaks,
what it fixes and other considerations.
