I'm not in agreement here. The proper fix is to not duplicate the
libmp4v2 library, now that it's in a separate package, which would mean
ripping it out of mpeg4ip and rebuilding the package against the new
shared libmp4v2.

When two packages provide the same library which fulfills a
requirement, the behaviour is pretty much undefined... it seems like
yum probably just picks up the first one it finds alphabetically... why

For me, it's a packaging bug that needs fixing :-)
