The problem is that openmovieeditor directly depends on libavcodec52. I am wondering whether openmovieeditor depends on that library enough that it won't function without it (I haven't checked in detail for myself yet). If it does, then we really need to consider our course of action here, as I don't think we should be shipping this library.

I agree. If Ubuntu isn't shipping it, we shouldn't either. Along with
any apps that depend on it. On your next seed update, pull it. In the
meantime, we can consider the options.
