Yes, it's a global variable defined in mplayer.c as

    MIKMODAPI UWORD md_mixfreq = 44100;

Yes. Or just not set it at all, letting MikMod decide the sensible default.

(I guess we could also save the desired frequency as part of the mod_t 
structure and change md_mixfreq as needed, but I don't know if that's a 
safe thing to do so I'd say let's not.)

Such a change would probably break a lot of existing programs so I 
wouldn't count on getting that patch accepted.
