sure! burn all mp3! hey, I'm a *GNU*/Linux user *and* GNU/Hurd user...
but I guess the main problem here is the 'multithreaded' word... sylpheed,
gnome and other programs do not work on the Hurd yet because they use
pthreads (I guess this is the reason for those I mentioned)
anyway, who needs an MP3 manager when ogg is there to make all of us
