winegstreamer: Avoid Fedora and openSUSE?

gstreamer 32 bit was long broken on Fedora in the past due to ever broken dependencies of gst-plugins-bad and gst-plugins-ugly. But that was fixed in the middle of Fedora 31 and is still ok now in Fedora 32. winegstreamer used to work fine for me in the games I tried since then (i. e., there weren’t gst related problems anymore).
I am not sure I ever saw a problem discussed in the referenced bug report, but I did not try to reproduce with clean Fedora install.
