Thanks very much!
We are encoding gigabytes of mono speech - using multiple cores could
cut quite a lot of time off our asset builds.
tbh, it wouldn't be that much work to change our audio compiler so it
runs 2 compiles at the same time, but it would save doing the work if
the encode dll took care of all that.
..of course, the audio compiler would need modifying _again_ for a quad
core machine - we need a new paradigm, dammit!
