Well the main advantage I can see is that we are able to have mp3 
support without adding a new library dependency.  This will be 
especially useful for platforms other than Linux where libmpg123 is not 
present. Such as the Mac.

There is no technical or licensing reason we would have to link to the 
native library.

We could make a configure parameter that either links native existing or builds the independent builtin version.
