[mythtv] Support for .shn (shorten) audio format

The coders over at shnutils.freeshell.org provide the xmms-shn package under
the GPL (possibly the LGPL, not positive at the moment).  So, if one were to
use the code provided in the xmms-shn package to enable shn playback under
MythMusic, would that not be acceptable?

Exactly.  It's certainly not free, or anywhere near compatible with the GPL,

which it would have to be to go into mythmusic.
