So we've got one package where the support for libmp4v2 has to be 
ripped out because of license incompatibilities and another one which 
will most probably never enter Debian.

Well, I prepared the mp4v2 packages anyway:

I think, however, that its license (MPL) makes the package mostly 
useless for linking against all GPL'ed software - which is, well, 
quite a lot.

If any of the listening DDs find use in this package, please consider 
uploading anyway.
