The reference implementation is not necessarily the best one. AFAIU the
plan is to replace the libfaad based decoder with the internal one.

http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.ffmpeg.devel/73054 has
preliminary benchmarks that compares ffaac with faad. I therefore
conclude that we should go with ffaac instead of faad.

Another reason: The only difference to ubuntu is that in ubuntu, faad is
disabled. Switching to ffaac would remove that last functional
