If I'm not mistaken, I believe he is referring to ACM codecs. They are
generic codecs in the ACM framework, and can be used by any program built
to deal with ACM codecs.
While I think one might be useful to someone, somewhere, the ACM interface
is horridly crufty and complicated. Vorbisfile is much simpler.
So I don't think any of us have started writing one, and I don't think any
of us plan to :)
