A change in get_iplayer.  If you have some software/hardware that for 
some reason requires raw AAC and/or can't cope with an MP4 container, 
you could add an option to get_iplayer to create AAC rather than M4A 
files.  It would require very little code.  Perhaps easier would be to 
use --command to automate the demuxing you already do.
