<snip interesting points, but I'm going to cut that short>

I'm going to be blunt. The GtkHxPlayer isn't in GTK+. It won't be in
GTK+ (or GNOME or any higher level library) unless the license is
compatible with the LGPL. Until the licensing problem are fixed, this
kind of discussion is pointless.


(And I really wouldn't like to see *all* my applications linked to a
media framework (like you're proposing), or even to some OpenGL library
(like Qt/KDE does) that I'm not using).

results in promotion to a job you can't do.
