This would mean that we would need to redistribute the libavcodec
package under GPLv3. I guess this causes problems with packages with
incompatible licenses like GPLv2 (only) and similar.

I didn't think this really through, but if we find a solution, we could
already do so for squeeze, btw.

This is exactly why I sent the message to debian-release earlier
today. short: no idea, the RT needs to decide on that.
