  I am mildly for mentioning resampling here. The most understandable
for outsiders (that does not conflict with terms used in FFmpeg) would
probably be

"audio resampling and sample format conversion library"

so probably

"audio resampling library"

is the better choice.

  I mean the purposes of the lib are explained right at the top of the
document, so users will quickly see it can do things beyond resampling.
I guess the term conversion in "audio conversion library" will also
make many think of conversion between audio file formats and codecs.

  But no strong opinion about this, just transmitting some thoughts
over the mailing list.
