please don't make this mistake.
after 5 years of doing its own audio file handling, ardour finally
switched to using libsndfile for everything.
you may think you know your applications limitations and don't need
libsndfile, but i claim that you're wrong. sooner or later, you will be
asked for, or will realize the need for, a change that will be much
easier if you just accept that the full range of functionality offered
by libsndfile is the place to start.
