I need some explanation about latest faad-update regarding it's new 
introduced default dependency on multimedia/mpeg4ip. As far as I see 
there mpeg4ip has a conflict defined on faad:
--- multimedia/mpeg4ip/Makefile

CONFLICTS=      faad*


So now I am asking myself, if it is wise to define mpeg4ip as default 
dependency in faad, while faad is defined as a conflict in mpeg4ip. Is 
this just something temporary? If it is not wouldn't it be much more 
consistent to make internal mpeg4ip the default for faad? Am I missing 

Thanks for the answers and greets,
