I'm glad to hear that 0.x is still maintained and, as it seems, still 
updates. Well, but why don't you just integrate 2.x and 0.x into each 
other, I mean, use 2.x as a "major brandnew rewrite" of 0.x and 
simply add MP3-support (just an option to link against lame) to 2.x? 
It would be up to every user if he / she wants to live with the legal 
"problems" connected with MP3 or not. But where's the problem? Does 
maintaining two separate tools doing almost the same make that much 

<p>Just my 2 cents. Sorry if it might sound aggressive, wasn't intended!
