Unfortunately, the decoder for AAC/MP4 has not yet been optimised enough, and
thus, only runs at around 50% of realtime. See
http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/SoundCodecs#Current_status for an
overview of what works and what still requires work in order to function.

Note that mp3's and ogg-vorbis files currently run at >100% realtime, and thus,
don't skip.
