People generally complain about FFmpeg's bad encoders.

I foresee I can essentially totally kill CELT's prospect of taking
over the world by writing a shit encoder in FFmpeg (compare
Theora/Vorbis). Not that I would, but do you see my point? It'd be
nice if you provide a patch that adds wrapper libs to FFmpeg at the
very least, so we have something to start off from.

Unfortunately, no time to review CELT right now, thesis thesis thesis,
but I'll try to look at it at some point...
