I guess I missed the first time :)
As for the legality of such a thing, Tord Jansson (BladeEnc upstream author)
posted to Slashdot a few times a while back about this:
(It's about halfway down - search the page for 'Tord').
Bottom line, Fraunhofer never filed a patent in Sweden (or Australia), so
there's no patent issues regarding distribution or use of mp3 encoders there.
Somewhere out there, there's an MP3 Patents FAQ but I can't seem to find it
with a google search right now.
