I don't know the answer to that because I am not involved in the build. 
I did check the Lucid version which is the system I use by looking at 
the properties file list in Synaptic for the Ubuntu released packages 
and downloading the .deb files from the PPA and looking at them with 
archive manager. The bad and ugly PPA packages are the same content as 
the Ubuntu released versions and therefore contain the exact same files 
other than the revision of source code used to build them. This makes 
sense or a real mess would result with the package manager. I often need 
the ugly-multiverse package which is also not in the PPA because it has 
the x264 encoder interface.
