Hi Habs,

I'have not upgraded to openshot 2.x yet as it has been a beta version
until this august...
but the main reason why I haven't upgraded yet is that the new version
is based on python3 and ATM I'm trying to avoid python3 stuff on my
installations: for this reason I'm also inclined to drop completely
openshot and its two dependencies goocanvas and pygoocanvas.
if someone is interested in maintaining these scripts, please step in.
