Why? Usually you shouldn't have a codecs.conf file installed. Only when you have
to do some custom changes to it, but then installing a "clean" one won't help at
all.
Unless you give some good reason, this is rejected.

I changed this a long time ago. codecs.conf is just for developers, old
versions cause a lot of trouble, thus the renaming.
