I actually have no idea how fast a native haskell implementation would
be. But I do know that it would take a long time to write one compared
to writing libmad bindings :) Writing a good quality mp3 decoder is a
big project.

This page ought to give you an idea of how easy it is to get wrong:


The only *downside* of libmad I found is that it is GPL, not LGPL or
BSD. But, even then, they offer a commercial license, so...

I will attempt to get what I have online tomorrow...
