Well, I personally think that a switch to generate a mono file from the sum
of all channels is a good thing to have.  It would save you from having to
run a file through sox just to do this, particularly good if you want to do
it on the fly for streaming in mono, for example.  It would also be nice to
have an encode left or right channel only option.  Of course, it'd be
better if it could be expressed in such a way to make it compatibal with
multichannel input, but I can't think of a good way of doing this.
