I think GSM has been donated to us.
Anyway there are not files using it - we can make a separate audio plugin

Actualy - I'm reworking Debian packages so next set will have
some plugins downloadable separately 

for begining just these:

vorbis  (will depend on vorbis libaries)
mad - will use libmad.so
win32 - buildable for i386 architecture only

we might create separete gsm audio if you wish

- so far I'm undecided about the package names -
maybe   libavifile0.6-plugin-vorbis
but it's quite long - my just libavifile0.6-vorbis

any suggestions ?
