[MPlayer-users] Is libmad really needed???

Lately I have observed, that libmad is requested and I get a lot
of messages like:

Forced audio codec: mad
Requested audio codec family [mad] (afm=libmad) not available.
Enable it at compilation.
Opening audio decoder: [mp3lib] MPEG layer-2, layer-3

My question is: if mplayer is going to mp3lib when it sees that
I don't have libmad (BTW libmad hasn't beed modified since 2004,
hmmmm..), why do I have to receive this annoying message?
