Re: MP3 decoder packaged with XMMS

AFAICT Debian includes many packages that violate software patents

To my knowledge, neither Debian nor any other distribution of Linux has ever been found to infringe a valid patent. Just because a software patent has been issued by the PTO does not mean it is truly valid or infringed. Only a court of law can make those determinations.
