I tend to agree, it would definately be good to have a range of samples 
in speex format available on the website.

It's obviously quite confusing to some people, since they expect to find 
sample speex files but there is .wav files. It is also handy when 
someone wants to test if their player is installed properly or working. 
I figure, how can it hurt to provide a few samples. Would be even nicer 
particularly for developers to have a set of samples which exercise the 
full range of settings and features :)
