Yes, along with an update to the Mumble package in Sid to allow using the celt 
library, until the transition away from use of celt in versions of Mumble.

However the Mumble package as it exists in Wheezy is undistributable, as Ron 
told me (in #675971, message #86) -- it is not buildable due to issues with 
gcc 4.7 and zero-ice.  Ron did a lot of work on zero-ice and hardcoded use of 
gcc 4.6 for the version of Mumble in Sid -- but the version in Sid doesn't use 
the celt library right now.

I'd be okay with this except that Mumble package in Sid doesn't mention 
compatability issues in NEWS.Debian to let users know of compatability
