I haven't seen a statement from the libmpeg2 author in this whole thread
concerning his "in-ness" on "the whole thing".

Do you believe everything someone says on the Internet?  No?  Then why
should we?  Why is it so offensive that we ask for proof?

Then you should rest easy, as it's very likely that such high-quality,
free, uncontroversial software will be a shoo-in for inclusion.  Indeed,
it would seem that someone is already hard at work to make this a
reality.  If the legal situation with mplayer is as you say, then
"apt-get install mplayer" should be a reality in a jiffy.

That is your goal, right?  Or are you (and others) just interested in
slamming people when you say things like that?
