[theora] theora video plugin ? videolan plugin?

I'd be very interested in knowing if there is a way to easily remove 
support for patent encumbered codecs in FFMPEG (and by extension, VLC).  
I've been trying to manually remove the codecs one at a time, but there 
are so many it's taking forever...

My plan is to eventually maintain a free format only fork of FFMPEG to 
use as the basis of creating legally distributable variants of the 
various FFMPEG powered projects (like VLC).

Has anyone else looked into this?
