Sound/Music Functions

Verge now supports (or will real soon) support module repacking. Please view the documentation at [ ] . A brief, exciting summary of its critical features would be: removes redundant samples from mod files and optionally uses flac lossless compression to result in a significantly smaller distribution size for all games, especially those including custom music with shared samples.

Its integration with verge is simple. A call to PlayMusic("") will attempt to look for the files `module.it_` and `library` in the same directory. If it finds them, it will load them as repacked modules. If not, it will attempt to load `` directly before giving up.

It is thought that this interacts flawlessly with the pakfile system. Please contact zeromus if you encounter any difficulties.

As an added bonus, my_sfx.wav_ can be loaded the same way, resulting in around a 40-50% decrease in sfx size.
