LAME All patents expired free to use .PLEASE ADD TO AUDACITY

Being as the patents are all expired WIKI LINK Can you now have it that when we install Audacity we don't need to go download LAME and install it seperately..There is no legal ramification for including it now that the patents have run their course and the technology is open to use freely worldwide.

Just saying

Thank you for your suggestion. The developers are aware of this. As yet there has been no announcement from the development team, but my conjecture is that LAME will be included in the not too distant future, but not in time for the next release.
