Please don't. I don't see why we only want to support a subset of
audioformats that pretty much every audio lib supports.
These two formats are the most common, but probably not the only ones

And apart from that I hate using glib type names to describe formats. Same
goes for float audio, I'd prefer a width parameter to a "gfloat"/"gdouble"
And btw, if there are endianness issues with floats, we need to do
endianness there, too.

We shouldn't make it too simple. And we should really support all possible
