I've been testing lots of audio formats in Sailfish (aac, dts, flac, mp3,
opus, alac, ac3, vorbis) and haven't noticed any issues so far. But that
somafm stream didn't work so I tested it on my desktop too where I keep an
old installation of gst-0.10 around and it bloody worked. It seems that
faad2 is a better fit for somafm so I added it to the gst-plugins-bad-extra
package on Openrepos.

So now somafm works in Sailfish too and hopefully that codec doesn't screw
up something else. :)
