In principle that's possible -- assuming the Windows developer snapshot is 
updated (which right now doesn't support Opus), that's what users would have 
to upgrade to in order to not have their communications degrade when a Debian 
user joins their server.  I'd be a lot more comfortable with this idea if Opus 
was about to make it to the *stable* version of Mumble -- it doesn't seem 
right to me to force the stable version of the software into planned 

And of course if we count Linux users in this [who have admittedly been shown 
to be a tiny fraction of the population], then we have a different problem, 
because it's going to take time for Opus support to make its way into the 
various distribution releases and it's not as easy to say "just upgrade" for 
that case.

Just food for thought.
