Well, since libavcodec is the library that has the native wma decoder, and 
there's already a fairly current copy of libavcodec in the mythtv source, it 
really wouldn't be all that difficult to do.  Just have to write some wrapper 
code connecting a mythmusic decoder plugin to the existing library.  I don't 
really see the point, is all.  I don't like to listen to overcompressed music
