Adding a request_sample_fmt field would be easy.  The user could set it
to request a sample format (which could optionally be ignored or used by
the selected decoder) or leave it as-is to get the default.  Once we
have planar audio support and an optimized conversion API, it will
become more practical to always output in the decoder's native sample
format and this option could be deprecated.
