Doesn't the GPL license forbid the codec from being incorporated in
commercial products? Or at least have to provide their source for free? If
this is the case then I doubt commercial game makers will be interested.
Maybe the licence could be changed to allow the decoder to be incorporated
in commercial products providing they pay a minimal amount and/or be forced
to advertise the fact that it includes the Vorbis codec. This would fund
the project and/or help make the codec more widespread.
Also my 2 cents.
