 It won't be "replaced", but a new demuxer can be added. And libmodplug can
 be deprecated and deleted in a later release.

 The most annoying problem with modplug so far was the need of allocating
 the buffer for the whole file. I assume libopenmpt has a better design.

 Writing such a demuxer is not a complex task btw. You can look at
 libavformat/libgme.c for a simpler alternative to libmodplug.
