libvo-aacenc is a dump from an earlier Android build. Android has
since switched to fdk-aac and libvo-aacenc is just dead.
So from that perspective, there is definitely nothing lost.

Can't judge the speed, but libvo-aacenc has the worst quality of all
aac lc encoders we had, so I doubt anyone is going to miss it.
