Ok, I've implemented an initial patch that will get mythtv using libmp3lame 
via dlopen. You can find the packaging at
Vcs-Git: git://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/mythtv.git
Vcs-Browser: http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/mythtv.git

It seems to me mythtv only used libmp3lame for encoding, so there's no need 
for a decoder. I could work on this some more where mythtv falls back to using 
libtwolame in case libmp3lame is missing.

Any feedback is welcome. :)
