Yeah.  I suspect it might be useful to handle also those books that
are a bit soft when it come to standards. :/

At the very least, the applications should report exactly what is
wrong with a book if it does not follow the specification. :)

How many books did the project use to verify that the player work?

I've done some more cleaning in the source, to make sure both 'make
destcheck' and 'debuild' work properly.  You still need to figure out
the proper shared library versioning.  What are the plans for API and
ABI stability?

Happy hacking,
