Perhaps we should add a default service that periodically deletes these

Indeed, the ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0/registry.x86_64.bin embeds absolute
file names.

The gstreamer cache in ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0 goes stale and must be
manually deleted after changing what gstreamer plugins are installed.
This can be dangerous as old plugins might be referenced long after they
have been upgraded, causing the user to continue using old plugins
despite an upgrade.
