The other way I considered doing this is by doing the rounding in  
fill_audio_out_buffers() after returning from get_space(). This at  
least avoids doing it to every AO (or even every affected AO) but it's  
still a hack. A "deep fix" here would probably involve decoupling the  
amount of audio decoded from the change in value of  
sh_audio_t.a_buffer_len, but that's deeper than I feel confident that  
I can get right.
