Seems to me you can't throw out MP3 just because
it isn't open source. Some
people have a large investment in MP3 and can't
just cut over to Ogg Vorbis.
That being said, I'm a big fan of Ogg Vorbis, and
won't be running anything
else on my own system. We're already looking at
multiple MTAs, for instance.
Isn't there room for both MP3 and Ogg Vorbis in


  Yes. their is room, but:
	1: read my last post for "my" reason for not
including it and
	2: as with the -j option, the sooner we can get
the rest of the world to convert to the idealistic
ways of the free software movement, the better off
they will be.

   (#2 is just my attempt at humor)
