 Mix_Chunk structure is created with either Mix_LoadWAV_RW() or Mix_LoadWAV() 
that only accept WAV files as arguments. On the other hand, at least last 
time I checked, MixMusic does support a lot of different formats but has an 
unique channnel, so you can't play a lot of those files at once.
 This is a reason why a lot of people use SDL_sound or FMOD.

PS: this is vanilla SDL_mixer we're talking about, right?
