Fair enough, I'll try. You do realize, though, that this code will be completely 
untested unless someone finds a real-world wav file with more than one WAVE chunk?

Right now, this is my idea of an implementation:

- 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 url_ftell() to
   determine how many bytes are left to read. If none are left, use find_tag to
   skip to the next WAVE chunk and continue reading there. If find_tag doesn't
   find another WAVE chunk, it'll return -1 and set the eof flag, so reading will
