Consider player update for Lenny (version 2.0.4-3.3)

Hi.  I noticed from a blog post by Lucas Nussbaum[1] that
ffmpeg-debian[2] was one of the most popular packages currently
missing in Lenny, and that its propagation is blocked by the player
package, because of a RC bug with a patch.

Because of this, I just uploaded a new version of player[3] applying
this patch, to solve the RC issue and improve the chance of having
ffmpeg-debian in Lenny.  The NMU patch is available in BTS[4].

Please consider updating the player package in Lenny, and also to
allow the current ffmpeg-debian package in Unstable into Lenny.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
