MAD is an MPEG audio decoder. It currently only supports the MPEG 1
standard, but fully implements all three audio layers (Layer I, Layer II,
and Layer III, the latter often colloquially known as MP3.)
MAD has the following special features:
- 100% fixed-point (integer) computation
- completely new implementation based on the ISO/IEC 11172-3 standard
- distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL)

that may be propagating to testing (see #311488).

to restore the updated shlibs lost in the switch to CDBS
(closes: #310311).
