I haven't heard anything new related to lame. There's only the issue with 
inconsistency as far as what license terms lame is distributed under. All 
sources have standard LGPL header. A file named 'LICENSE' says lame is under 
LGPL. There is, however, a README file that includes 2 extra terms on top of 
the LGPL.

Other than that, packages in the NEW queue are getting low priority anyway 
because of work underway to deliver a new release of Debian.
