Should enable libopus/opus plugin.

It's getting more and more usage, -- Firefox 15 was just released with native support for opus, Opera and Webkit-GTK works when gstreamer has Opus support.

It's on track to getting standardized as baseline codec for WebRTC.

Big things coming for Opus ;-)
This task depends upon

Now that Opus got RFCed. And approved as a MTI codec in webRTC. I think It's appropriate to do this now.

Packaged firefox 15 already has opus enabled by default(through in-tree libopus). Opera, webkit-based browsers, and all gst apps can play ".opus" files but only if this bug is fixed.

Official release and huge media coverage is expected in the coming hours. It would be nice if Arch doesn't "lag" much behind Fedora and Debian(testing) in Opus support.

ffmpeg 1.0 also has support for Opus decoding using libopus. A feature not reflected (yet) in the Arch package.
