Issue 2847 - the aifc module still imports the cl module in 3.0.
Problem is that the cl module is gone. =) So it seems silly to have
the imports lying about. This can probably be changed to critical.

It shouldn't be a problem to rip everything cl-related out of aifc.
The question is how useful aifc will be after that ...

Has someone already used that module ? I took a look into it, but I'm a bit confused about the various compression types, case-sensitivity and compatibility issues [1]. Are Apple's "alaw" and SGI's "ALAW" really the same encoding ? Can we use the audioop module for ALAW, just like it's already done for ULAW ?
