This is a bit like saying 'IPv6 is the current version, we need to change
packages to use that instead of IPv4'.
If CELT 0.9 is significantly better then the SPICE protocol should be
updated to support it as an alternative. But since 0.5 is now specified
in that protocol then SPICE clients and servers will need to support it
for a long time to come.
