I feel "ugly" is a bit too negative for code which can't live in good
only because of licence/patent issues, it sounds to me like an official
statement from gstreamer saying "all licence are crap unless they are
lgpl-compatible". A bit too strong of a statement imo. But if that's
really the message you want to carry, just go ahead :)
