I'll second this request for keeping audioop.

I use it in my public project cuisine.bigasterisk.com for assembling
stereo audio out of two audio channels and for mixing down multiple
audio tracks.

I also intend to try out audioop's search routines as a way of
automatically syncing video clips from two cameras that recorded
approximately the same audio.
