Shorten is open source (as in "you can get a tarball containing the
source files"), but it forbids you to use it in a commercial product,
and it's not saying much about redistribution of modified source iirc.
The Shorten plugin is only a decoder, I wrote it because I wanted to
convert Shorten files to a free format (flac) using a free framework
(GStreamer). The Shorten plugin isn't distributed with gstreamer or
gst-plugin but lives in a separate cvs module
