[SDL] Am I allowed to use code from SDL_mixer in a new library?

I'm writing an SDL audio library that, at least for me, can replace 
SDL_mixer.  It has actual floating point mixing in it as well as 
resampling and decoding.  All the supported formats are in place, but 
I'm not familiar with native MIDI on OS X and w32 (currently FluidSynth 
is used.)  I'd like to borrow the native MIDI code from SDL_mixer. 
Would that be OK?  I wouldn't want to step on someone's toes, since the 
library is GPL and I'm also thinking about allowing non-GPL use for 
non-commercial purposes and I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do that if I 
use code from SDL_mixer.
