This is a mpega.library clone using the very excellent libmad for
decoding, it looks and behaves just like the original, but with several
benefits offered by libmad...

Why should I use this instead of the original mpega.library I hear you
say? Well, here's a list of reasons:

- Supports 8kHz streams (the original decodes these wrong).

- Supports FreeFormat (upto a whopping 640kbps) streams.

- Supports ReplayGain (stored in LAMEtags).

- Very high quality decoding (better than the FPU version of the original).

- Very low CPU usage (integer original is still faster on 68k though).

- mpega.library is no longer updated (and I haven't been able to get in
  touch with Stephane Tavenard for ~2 years (and counting))...
