Didn't somebody say this program used qt? There were times when _you_
would have been shot by RMS for claiming qt to be a part of GNU.

Don't get me wrong: I somewhat symphatize with calling it GNU/Linux,
as long as we are talking about the Operating System itself. But if we
start talking about dependancies, why not call it 'a multithreaded MP3
manager and tag editor for GNU/Linux/XFree86/qt/foo'?

The thing is: RMS is around for a long time and really changed the
world. The only visible thing I've seen from you is bitching about
giving something proper credits. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure you did a
hell of a lot more for the Free Software Community than I did, but I'd
prefer RMS finishing the NM process and evangelize us himself, while
you'd get the Hurd port released ASAP.
