ffmpeg 0.5 was released in march 09. The next release is scheduled for
end of march 10. AFAIUI, it will miss the squeeze freeze.

that's already possible with ffmpeg 0.5 that we ship with squeeze. The
problem with that is the license: linking against opencore will render
the resulting libavcodec library as GPLv3. Until now, noone has made an
analysis on the impact of that change.

in experimental we'll have something newer soon (given that it will ever
pass NEW, cf. mplayer package in NEW but that that's another story.),
I'm currently busy with the ffmpeg 0.5.1 release, which is what we will
go for with squeeze.
