thanks for your work on it. I guess this is also a request for having
this patch as is in lucid/multiverse. In this case, I think the patch
can be a bit simplified. Moreover, I think debian/copyright needs to be
amended to state clearly that the libavcodec.so library in that package
is explicitly and only redistributed under the terms of GPLv3. I *guess*
that this might be acceptable and practicable for ubuntu as well, as we
offer a GPLv2 licensed alternative in main.

Do you want to improve your patch?
