Probably not very hard at all.  I don't want to do this just now
however for two reasons:

1) I like doing small-scale commits.  If using libtheora for theora
decoding is desirable it should be done in a separate commit.

2) If it aint broke don't fix it.  Until there is a problem using the
VP3 decoder for Theora decoding I don't see why we should change
