Yeah, i fail to see why we should not (after reading dirac changelog).

That's typical for software like dirac.  I'd suggest you ask your
multimedia maintainer(s) to do that.

And, btw, ffmpeg should be buildable with 0.10.0 as well, and there is a
patch for MPlayer.

Patches for transcode are easily done, though.

Yeah, it's nothing more a "hai, we can has a dirac enc/decoder", but i yet
fail to see how it would be usable to anyone.
