Sound in Emacs

Emacs has rudimentary support for playing sound -- .wav and .au files,
if I read the code correctly.

Has anybody considered adding support for modern sound formats via a
library like SDL?  


It seems like it has support for all the common formats -- .flac and
.ogg and .mp3 and .etc.

There's probably no extremely compelling reasons to add built-in support
for a real sound player in Emacs, but it might be kinda neat.  If you're
in a dired buffer, you can hit RET to see images, but sound files aren't
as available.  Wouldn't it be nice if you hit RET on an .mp3 file, and
Emacs pops up a waveform buffer and starts playing the file?  And you
can skip around in the song/podcast...

Has anybody done any work in that direction?  And if not, would Emacs
(after 24.1, or course) be open to adding such functionality if somebody
(ahem) were to find the time to implement it?
