Provide opus vbr option

Registered by david on 2014-08-27

Is there any specific reason why soundconverter does not provide a vbr option for conversion to opus?

I came accross this because I thought that soundconverter was slower than dbpoweramp on mp3 to opus conversions.
A benchmark with 128kbit mp3s from Radio France to 48kbit opus confirmed 80x real time on soundconverter and >130x real time with dbpoweramp on the same machine.
I was able to reproduce the 80x speed with dbpoweramp when setting it to cbr, so I'm quite sure soundconverter uses cbr.

Why is there no vbr option when the quality is supposed to be slightly better, the speed is better and the size uncertainty is not that big?
