Ocaml-vorbis and ocaml-mad take strings as input. Reading data from
libsndfile as string would allow a straightforward use of these libs

One might argue that having vorbis and mad work on float arrays would
be better. That's a point. But on the other hand, the current
datatypes avoid some conversions -- at least on the vorbis/mad side.

My 2 cents.
