Bug 81 depends on bug 37 to be relevent or not.

However, bug 37 *has not* got a final resolution (afaik no one in the
dev group has agreed to teh bugs resolution and enacted it).

Patents are applicable in the USA, Japan, Australia and a bunch of other
countries. Not all contries.
If its illegal where you are to install/mirror mp3 codecs, don't do it.
That doesn't mean it has to come out of the main (well, universe)

Of course, its all IMO
