Generally you should just send patches here, I think.

I can't speak for Monty, but regarding the warnings:

The 'possible loss of data during conversions' are almost certainly 
spurious. The xiph code tends to rely on the truncation effects, and 
generally casts don't help readability much. It's best to turn these 
off an not worry about them.

The missing includes are a bug, and patches would be welcome.
