oooh. lgplv3 ... that'll be a problem for anyone shipping libheif... from our point of view it doesn't mater, but any system "Builder" (makes an os) now, if they want heif, essentially have to unlock the os and allow heif to be replaced.
my take - heif needs to be disabled by default and we need to note this in the README. it's on by default here so this needs to change.
no even if generic the lgplv3 will still apply as i mentioned. being lplg - the license doesnt affect efl or apps using efl, but gpl3 or lgpl3 affects the entire os requiring any gpl/lgpl3 component be user-replacable.
Chances of them re-licensing: 0.00001%. :) As I said - no need to make it a generic loader, but it does need to be off by default and an appropriate README entry describing what enabling it would mean for a system.
