Just verifying: does the vpx USE flag in ffmpeg control the support for
encoding vp8, decoding it, or both? How should www-client/chromium
depend on ffmpeg to make sure it will support vp8?

It might also be webm. Not sure what's more intuitive for people. Also,
nteresting question would be whether to enable the flag by default an in
which profiles (desktop?).
