feature request: support for mp4/aac

The Presto Sound Library provides a Service so that any application can change the speed and pitch of MP3s/Oggs, provided the developer of that application has modified it to use Presto and the end user has Presto installed. It is currently in open beta.

Hello Aocate!

Let me first say how unbelievable happy i am about the fact, that you've wrote presto! I can't imagine how to play my podcasts without it... But:

Since most of my "ilistentoeverysingleepisode"-podcasts has switched to mp4/aac (from my point of view this year changed a lot in podcast scene), i would really really like to play them with presto.
I think i read, sou stated something about license issues and also about the need of being a able to decode that files, (here: http://forum.aocate.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=119#p448).

Isn't there anyway to get this running?
I've learned from here https://developer.android.com/guide/appendix/media-formats.html that 3.1+ devices can decode aac by default. OK, i'm not a developer nor do i know, how presto works. But: sure there is no way?
License issues: hmm, ok, somehow i do understand. But to be honest: presto is not that cheap compared to the average market prices. I'm fine with that. I bought it and i was happy so far. Look here http://www.vialicensing.com/licensing/aac-fees.aspx This site states, that an AAC license is around 1$. I've you're not willing to pay that from your app revenue (ok, i can understand that, too) please consider to make a second purchase key, which people can or can not buy from market, if they want to be able to pitch mp4/aac files.
Would that be a solution?
