We already have GPL code in FFMpeg, which is enabled only when
--enable-gpl is specified. Also making fastmemcpy optional won't be a
problem, as it is optional currently too.
Should I try preparing a patch?
Also in long term we could try asking fastmemcpy authors for LGPL
licensing. Big part of it was written by Michael anyway (agpcopy).
