You seem to somehow be under the impression that lawmakers are a bunch
of retards that do not see the difference between distribution and
distribution. Of course this would entail distribution. Why else do
you think Fedora and Ubuntu don't add restricted repositories to their
default install?

Just do it the right way: implement a LGPL AMR decoder in ffmpeg,
which happens to be part of Colin's SoC project of this year. Why not
contribute there instead?
