Whilst this is true, we're only talking about external, _optional_,

The sort of 'customers' you're talking about are people using
gstreamer on embedded devices - and they always select the exact
plugins they want to ship anyway. I'm sure they're not shipping
cdparanoia now, and they're not going to be shipping the
newly-relicensed cdparanoia either.
