Mplayer again.

 I was just about to send packages for uploading, when one more issue
 about mplayer's sources creeped up, one file seems to bee a bit
 controversial on licence side ( divx_vbr.c, included later in this

 Since then, I've located way around it: "Michael Niedermayer
 implemented a two-pass mode directly into libavcodec".

What are my options now?
- can I remove this file in debian-patch? i.e. it would be it
 .orig.tar.gz, and get removed in diff, or do I need fix upstream first?

Also, how problematic is what we have here?
