And I would deeply appreciate if you could both agree to at least chose in the long term a license that avoids the issues of GPLv2 only, like having to chose between AMR en-/decoding and ProRes in MPlayer.
I just think that for decoders it isn't nice to keep people stuck in a proprietary environment because moving out of it is blocked by some license.
I wouldn't mind a bit a compromise like "LGPLv2+ from 2014 on" or such.
