Okay, so to avoid the arguments here, maybe I should just wait until
there is a c file for common ac3 data and functions.  Right now the only
way I can see to avoid the duplication and do what you're describing is
to make the ac3 parser dependent on the ac3 encoder, which I don't think
would be a good thing.

Right now I'm just trying to reduce the ac3 decoder patch one step at a
time.  I guess I'll start somewhere else and do this step later.
