Basic audio mixer for sound effects.

This simple audio mixer makes it possible to play quick sounds, for instance when clicking on buttons, or for game sounds effects.

Only WAV files are supported. For playing MP3 music, and for more options, it is advisable to use the SDL_Mixer library.

Remark: This module is essentially independent of the rest of Bogue, so its source can, with very few modifications, be used for any SDL application.
