Mingw-w64's core is ZPL, but its header files are public domain. This
means that evr.h or any other files I work on will remain public
domain. The core of mingw-w64 (as I understand it) is ZPL exactly
because public domain has no meaning outside US.
This also means that mingw shouldn't have anything against it, but
they haven't answered yet. Anyway - evr.h and vo_evr.c are going to
change on a daily/weekly basis in the next months, so what do you
suggest? Even if mingw decide to include it (I think they would), are
you against temporary inclusion of evr.h in MPlayer until it get's
better enough? I need to know it order to prepare the first patch.
