Ok. Does this sound about right?

- Define a WAVContext struct in wav.c that contains a single member
- Change wav_iformat so memory for the WAVContext is allocated.
- In wav_read_header, set wave_chunk_len
- In wav_read_packet, compare s->data_offset+wave_chunk_len to s->pb->pos to
   determine how many bytes are left to read. When none are left, set
