I don't see to much of a problem with this as long as afparse won't get
used by mistake by the spider (which it won't). People would probably
get more upset if they can't build gst-plugins because they don't have
audiofile CVS.

Actually now that I think about it, afOpenVirtualFile is defined in
audiofile's header but is not implemented which explains why it builds
ok - go figure.
