The previous code was not particularly nice either (it always downmixed
to stereo even if you had support for more), but I think the current
situation is still a serious regression for most users compared to the
previous MPlayer release. Now they only way to play DTS audio with a
stereo ao is to manually give coefficients to -af pan.
