I'm using libsndfile to read the audio files.  The main reason I'm using
.wav at the moment is that I know exactly how many samples long the
sound is when I edit in Audacity (or whatever).  The Mirage can only
accept a maximum of 64kB per dump (one half of the memory - yes, 128kB x
8 bit sampling).
