Yes, basically it's just a port from my already 68k asm MOD support
external lib using TuComposer. The same applies to S3M, XM, IT and
FC13/14. Just MED will be new.

Because practically nobody actually can use this codec currently, so
having it default disabled and all related stuff is a better idea, I think.

It's clearer what should not be used right now, if all is in dir
libavsequencer/* instead of having that in libavcodec. In lavc we would
have the header files spread all around during 100 of other codecs.

I'ld prefer the way to keep the lavseq stuff as it for now and later
decide when all works if we move that from lavseq to lavcore or sth. else.

Then it's more useful also, since we have MOD / etc. support also.
