Sorry to butt in, I find this topic very interesting. I think this
question of the GPL FAQ speaks about your viewpoint as well:
What would be the effect of allowing mplayer code to be used in
Quicktime? Probably fewer Mac OS-X users for mplayer (free), and more
for Money Guzzler, I mean Quicktime (non-free) I would think.
Just my $0.02
