eeewww, yes, it looks like you are correct.
so I bit the bullet and did autodetect the correct way. now
it will read the first 12 bytes of the file and check for
RIFFxxxxWAVE. and instead of ungetc()ing it, I changed the
wav and raw readers to use up the lookahead first. not trivial
when you consider pipes and --skip, but it had to be done.
even though this didn't make it into 0.10, ungetc seems to handle
4 calls on every platform I tested on (glibc, msvc, solaris).
