The reason for doing it as a demuxer is that I have a few patches for
libmodplug which improve the seeking behavior (done through a single
api call) there (seeking in tracked music is still iffy though, there
might be loops etc and due to the nature of some effects, we can't
seek precisely). As and when that is included upstream, I assumed
adding seeking would be simplified. Or can this be achieved

That would have been awesome, and so would probing for filetype
(probing can be easily added to libmodplug), getting metadata etc, but
the modplug.h api is very limited and has like 3 functions for
playback control. That said, It does allow one to finely control
rendering and is readily available as a package on most distros.
