Why would we link to binary blobs that deny REing?

This is all messy to me. We are either good guys or we do not care and
do what every one does.

Adding wrappers like this, means we support them and we obey their rules.

Supporting closed source solutions also decrease chances for open source ones.

If you desperately need this: add it to VLC or GStreamer project.

If we supported external plugins this would not be problem.

Nobody came to me for REing this codec nor provided binary that does decoding.
