  Description     : Aoyumi's Tuned Vorbis - tuned version of the Vorbis encoder

AoTuV, which is based on Xiph's original vorbis-tools,
is widely recommended[0, 1] as encoder for Vorbis, assumed to
reach better quality at the same compression ratio.
Quoting e.g. [1]:
>aoTuV versions improves significantly on Vorbis quality:
>Most people agree aoTuV beta 4 (and newer) achieves
>transparency at -q 5.

Changes up to Beta2 were actually merged with Xiph's Vorbis

I think it would be great for Debian to have AoTuV in addition
to the Xiph version (AFAIU there may be some cases were AoTuV
produces worse results, and for which it would be good to have
the Xiph encoder as well.)

Maybe it can be easily packaged based on the vorbis-tools or
even delivered as part of it (therefore CCing the Xiph Maintainers
