"Villa said that Xine had "legal encumbrances" . ."

No URL, just that xine is fairly monolithic and has a number of encoders for things like mp3 and wm(a|v) that most distributors feel they can't distribute. Speaking as someone who recently left a distro, it is much easier and less painful to distribute gstreamer, and there is some hope that there will eventually be legal plugins for many currently illegal codecs, given the work that has been done to clean up gstreamer licensing.
