The RTP payload format defines everything you need to do to stream multi-channel
CELT audio. You happen to need more than one encoder state, but that's just an
implementation detail. The only thing that doesn't support >2 channels (for
now) is the Ogg software (celtenc/celtdec), but then again they're mostly toys
because there's no real reason to use CELT for encoding files.
