do you need the files decoded into memory? You could consider doing a gstreamer
based loader for the formats that are not covered by libsndfile? Then you can
load mp3, aac and heck what not (e.g. loading mod files or sid songs as well).

I have such code in buzztard and can point you where it is and how it works
(maybe offline discussion if people are not interested in the details).
