I'm not sure I follow this. Are you saying that enabling the embedded
celt would necessarily involve enabling /two/ versions of celt ? (And
you mention `0.7' and `0.11' neither of which are the same as `0.7.1'
so I'm confused about that too.)
Surely we want to avoid having multiple different versions if at all
possible. Is it essential to support anything other than 0.7.1 ?
I thought upstream had declared 0.7.1 to be a baseline so that would
And if 0.7.1 is sufficient, can it be done using an embedded copy
right now with a build system change, or would we have to dump a
special copy of celt 0.7.1 into the mumble source package ?

Rather than consider someone's emotional state, I'd rather focus on
their views. That is, if this is a bad idea according to the mumble
maintainers then I'd like to hear why they think so.
