It didn't look that bad to me; just a lot of time figuring out how 
you're supposed to do things. But then, I have some background in MacOS 

However, people in the past have hit bugs pretty fast. That's part of 
why I've not been inspired to try. Things may well be better now, so 
please do give it a go.

Have you tried the plugins at http://qtcomponents.sf.net/ ? They work 
for me (with vorbis, I've not tried speex) with iTunes on MacOS X. The 
'load everything into memory' hack is annoying, but better than nothing.
