I'm going to sponsor xvidcore, an MPEG4 encoding/decoding library
(RFP #232658), packaged by Edouard Gomez (one of the upstream developers).

I've been pointed out that MPEG4 is convered by a patent. However, also been
told that this shouldn't be a problem unless the patent holder is actively
enforcing the patent against us. Note that we are already using MPEG4 code in
debian (e.g. xine package).

Unless someone objects, I'll upload after a few days.
