libsndfile-1.0.20 will be on Fedora-12.

I suspect that it is ABI incompatible with libsndfile-1.0.17 and thus
updating libsndfile in stable releases of Fedora would require a
rebuilding of everything that depends on libsndfile. Therefore even
having a package in PlanetCCRMA would break things on the Fedora side.

Of course this analysis assumes ABI incompatibility. You can still try
your chances by filing a bug at bugzilla.redhat.com.
