Yeah. I copied the wav header code from somewhere else. I didn't have any
info. on the format at the time, which makes it rather harder.
Having since gained a Clue(TM) about this, I'll try and make the header
parser work reliably (rather than just expecting a list of chunks).
If someone could point me at a reasonably comprehensive spec for the wav
format, that'd be even better.
