Removal of CELT will remove a major feature of src:roaraudio. It will
not render the package useless just will make it useless for a group of
users. This is why we like to make this a smooth transition with getting
in Opus first, then removing CELT. Also note that this transition needs
users using it to change config so it should not be a single upload
removing one and adding the other.

The cirtical factor is time here. Ron Lee is a bit late with this
transition in the release cycle. Had he given us about a month more we
would have done all this already and everybody would be happy.

I have discusses several possibile ways to get this solved with the-me
(the maintainer). In fact both of us would *really* like to get this
done. CELT always added some extra work both upstream and in maintaining
packages because of the unfrozen bitstream.
