The thing about the mng libraries is they seem designed in such a way
the using  them to do simple timed display of mng is fairly easy, but
extracting static images becomes painful. I had been thinking about
doing something to read only the jpeg/png subset, but thesis writing
has taken me off ogg stuff for the past few months. I'm still of the
opinion this might be a useful thing to do (to provide the album art
and things that crazy people want to put into sound files).
