fair enough, very good reasons for not making it default. It didn't occur to
me about the codecs or the branch in which the dependencies had been placed,
sorry bout that one. Anyone know of any conversation out in the universe (no

the codecs to open source/freely distributable ones? ... just curious, i
might be chacing a goose on this one.
