True, but unfortunately 'liba52' does not name a consistent set of
software.  In chasing after my audio bugs, I have found at least 3
different applications, all using libraries called liba52, but all
behaving differently.  (Of course, some differences may be in the
client code, not in the library.)

The liba52 project itself was hosted on sourceforge but has not
changed since 2002, so it's quite likely that the library has forked :-(
