I think one of the reasons for discarding it (besides avoiding what for
almost all would be useless bloat - since it is not possible to have
only the encoder without the decoder) is that it forces people to
report and fix issues with the native decoder instead of just using
I don't object to adding it back though, but be careful not to add
extra dependencies in a default build, I think nowadays the vorbis
encode and decode functions are in separate .so files?
Also I'd be curious what exactly you needed it for, how did you
use it for the timestamp/seeking fixes?
Why wasn't our decoder "good enough" for whatever you did?
