i vote for removing libtheora support theres no sense in it, only use
would be debuging our decoder but then there are other tools like
mplayer which can be used and as you say our decoder is disabled if
libtheora is enabled so its not that usefull for debuging either

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
