I guess the legal problem(s) may come from the fact that
newer Wine has cut out its own MP3 decoder and instead,
it uses dlopened libmpg123. How does it differ from the
DVD playing situation? Xine, MPlayer, etc. uses libdvdcss
via dlopen if available. And the user, not the distributor adds
the decoding facility...
