I'm still a bit naive about this stuff, so could you explain it in 
excruitating detail for some example codec?
IE if you have an SSRC that is switched between g.711 and comfort noise, 
we could count the packets with each payload type, but that's not the 
same data as "periods of silence suppression" - for that, we would have 
to count the number of times a CN packet arrived after a G.711 packet.

I don't know how we would do this with OPUS.

Another question .... what's the use case - ie what decision do you want 
to make based on this data?
