That would require a fairly large code restructuring, the whole loader
was written with sequential single-threaded execution in mind.

It might be possible, though... and loading vorbis is the one use-case
where my gut feeling says that it might be worthwhile. But gut
feelings are often very wrong when applied to optimization. So in my
opinion, before we start thinking about if and how it could be done,
we should gather real evidence that loading SF3 files is actually
CPU-bound on your platform.
