Well, MPEG 1 layer II is (as far as I can tell) due to expire this year
and supporting it as both a raw mp2 file and as a compression type for
wav would make my day, along with many others that have to work with
radio broadcast related things..... 
At the moment I try libsndfile then if that fails do the pipe, dup2 and
execve thing to shovel it through an external decoder, but it is a lot
of code that would be better in the library. 

Patch acceptable once it finally expires?
