it should probably be trivial to convert mpg321 to the non-native format, but
is this program still needed now that mpg123 is free? Mpg321 looks abandonned
upstream anyway. Maybe it would be more fruitful to see if it can be replaced
by mpg123 in the packages that rdepend on it:
nx159《~》$ apt-cache rdepends mpg321
