winegstreamer: Avoid Fedora and openSUSE?

So I ran into an issue 3 years ago where the 32-bit GStreamer plugins 
are unusable on Fedora and openSUSE despite these distributions shipping 
the needed 32-bit packages.

So did anyone manage to get winegstreamer.dll to work for 32-bit Windows 
applications on Fedora and openSUSE or is it widely known that one 
should avoid them when using Wine?

Note that of course I reported this issue to the distributions and this 
is where you'll find more details about this issue:

* Fedora
  -> Reported against Fedora 26, then 28, still present in Fedora 32 
     but fixing this bug seems to have been postponed indefinitely. 

* openSUSE
  -> Supposedly fixed on Tumbleweed 2 years ago but still present on 
     openSUSE Leap 15.1
  -> New bug for openSUSE Leap 15.1.
