Hi Paul,

thanks for your input! I'm aware of "most" of the design issues of that 
code. It's only an example that I've done to understand basic libsndfile 
api (or just an excuse to write something fun in C ;) )

My next version will be better, but it will mantains the push model in 
the api, in order to keep things very simple.

Thanks again,
