there are two aspects to this:

a) reading these file formats
   This should really be added to libsndfile, so that everyone can use

b) timefx stuff

   This is hard to do properly with libsoundtouch. but not impossible.

there may be some stuff about the internals of these formats that
addresses (b) - if so, i am not aware of it yet.
