That's an idea I've been toying with, so far without any attempt of 
actually implementing it. I tentatively decided that it wouldn't be all 
that useful as long as SDL_sound still requires all the external 
libraries the compiled loaders depend on (e.g. both libmikmod and

actually tried that so I don't know how big a can of worms that would 
open up.
