Actually, it looks like I was wrong. I assumed that falling back to
sf_read_raw() and sf_write_raw() would mean that the wav header wouldn't
be handled correctly, but after reading the API documentation for those
functions, I believe that was an invalid assumption. So, your patch
should be fine. I'll apply it.
