These RPMS still appear to be using an internal copy of libogg and
libtheora which is currently identical to upstream code which is
already shipped in Fedora.

(There are currently some patches for libvorbis shipped in Mozilla
which are not upstream, but they introduce C99-isms (libvorbis is c90
clean for embedded platforms) and thus can't be directly applied
upstream; I'm looking into that now. The other media stuff is probably
too diverged from its upstreams to worry about right now.)
