We probably _should_, but I'm lazy.  :)

Yes, with one problem that's only partially related:

  In MikMod, is md_mixfreq a global variable?

That's going to cause problems if two separate MODs with different sample
rates are decoded simulataneously. Perhaps we should force MikMod to
always use 44100 or 22050 or whatever the first rate requested was for
every sample?

(Or we should patch Mikmod to not use global variables...what the hell
were they thinking?!)
