To use it in things other than ffmpeg. I personally use deadbeef and
quodlibet as music players, I would like to get support into those. I
have already created a plugin for deadbeef using the library, but
quodlibet uses gstreamer, and that is a bit intimidating, I don't know
that I'll get there.
Other people would also like to have HDCD decoding, and having this
library, perhaps, provides an easy way to get it into whatever player
they like.

Foobar2000 is a Windows only audio player, and the component foo_hdcd
is a plugin that adds HDCD decoding, and that code is what the filter
in ffmpeg is based on, but some of the work in ffmpeg has now gone
back into foo_hdcd, but not by using the shared library.

My objective is to get HDCD decoding in as much software as would like
to have it, but still have it all easy to maintain. Is that not a good
reason for a library?
