I'll do that. But will this package enter Debian itself, or will we have
to merge it directly from git?

Doesn't this mean we have the same issue with GPL software currently
using libmp4v2 from mpeg4ip? Does it mean we need to get the upstream
authors of gtkpod, kid3, etc. to relicense it under GPL+exception (which
might not be possible)?
As for libavcodec, I don't know about other applications, but these two
use libmp4v2 to access and modify metadata, not the sound data itself.
Is there another library for reading and writing AAC/M4A metadata?
