"""Convert "arbitrary" sound files to AIFF (Apple and SGI's audio format).

Input may be compressed.
Uncompressed file type may be AIFF, WAV, VOC, 8SVX, NeXT/Sun, and others.
An exception is raised if the file is not of a recognized type.
Returned filename is either the input filename or a temporary filename;
in the latter case the caller must ensure that it is removed.
Other temporary files used are removed by the function.
