Actually, this is not true anymore, as I uploaded a version of
DVDStyler to Ubuntu that is not depending on mjpegtools anymore and is
working fine (I am taking care of DVDStyler in Ubuntu, by the way).

I can't see where in the bug report, the ITP for DVDStyler is still
marked as blocked: could you give me some pointers?

Actually, A lot of people are finding DVDStyler useful, so could you
please elaborate a bit more on that sentence?
It appear in position 6676 in popcon and has been installed more that
30.000 times

I think you should reconsider that sentence, as I hope to have
demonstrated the contrary before.
