Theora is based on VP3:
There was some traffic on the ffmpeg-devel mailing list a while back
about incorporating theora into libavcodec, but I haven't heard anything
more about that in a long time.
VP5, I suppose, will remain proprietary... :(
Though, I've never read anything concrete about how vp5 stands up to
divx (or libavcodec mpeg-4). On2 claims it to be better, of course...
