libvo-aacenc doesn't see any development anymore.
Its an encoder taken from the android sdk a long time ago, but AOSP
replaced it with fdk-aac, so libvo-aacenc is EOL.

And its quality is horrible.

No idea why we would mark it experimental however. The built-in
encoder will always take precedence, so a user has to explicitly
request it as it is.
