Thanks everyone for the answers.  I'll be grabbing the code from 
SDL_mixer 2.0 then.

And yes, if I improve the code in any way that would be useful to 
SDL_mixer, I'll send the improvements back this way.

The choice of the GPL is quite conscious, btw, since I'm not making any 
kind of income whatsoever from programming.  With the GPL I can at least 
keep the option open to offer a commercial license in the event that 
someone would want to use the library in proprietary software and be 
willing to pay something for it :-)
