I don't think the question is if it will be in the next release, but whether 
it or mpeglib will be default for playing mp3s and ogg-vorbis (it will still 
play flac and mpc files)

It kinda looks like this:
+ aKodelib doesnt have several annoying mpeglib-bugs:
  * plays the last seconds of every song
  * large id3v2 tags don't produce loud scratching noices
  * searching doesn't produce loud scratching noices
  * fewer dropouts on most systems
- aKodelib might not work on some platforms: 
  * I know for certain that the pluginloader needs a few fixes for non-ELF 
system (naively assumes .so extension). (HP-UX)
  * For some systems the plugins might also need to be statically linked to 
their dependencies. (non-chained library loading)
  * I am not sure all our supported platforms even have the dlopen/dlsym 
calls... (?)
- aKodelib is new and _will_ have odd bugs of its own, but atleast I am 
actively maintaining it.
