The thought has crossed my mind before, since there's several quality MP3
decoders out there, and some people might prefer one decoder over another.

The question is how to enable that? Should it be a build-time option (you
pick your favorite MP3 decoder, and that gets compiled in), or should they
be choosable by environment option, or whatnot?

SDL_sound can't really pick a best MP3 decoder on the spot, so it'll have
to be a matter of elimination in some form or another...
