Sure, just leave it if you want.
I just kind of like doing these kind of things due to
1) It allows testing API things in a simple case that can be properly
2) Those simple codecs are often used as a base for new, more complex
ones where it might be worth it

So if someone thinks it would be fun to do this 100% I'll happily
discuss it more, but I am not _asking_ anyone to do it.
