np, don't forget get the xsl files can be customized.

although we don't actually support mp3 (non-free codec), streams of that 
codec work because it passes through without issue. In one sense you 
can't actually disabled it.

WMP is reported to work if you have the filters installed although MS 
don't provide the filters themselves. mp3 streams do work but my last 
information on this was that variable bitrate MP3 via a stream didn't 
work in WMP.

The mechanism for the actual listening bind was changed so that both 
ipv6 and ipv4 is listened on so it may been indirectly fixed. All I can 
say is that it wasn't reported and I do have access to x86_64.  The only 
problem case I'm aware of wrt listening sockets is on some BSD setups.
