Bug#90784: ITP: tooLAME: Layer2 encoder

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

tooLAME is a MPEG-1 layer 2 audio encoder. I'm pretty sure it's not affected
by the mp3 encoder patent situation, but I could be wrong. The license is
GNU GPL v2. 

Since most people are encoding mp3's at 192kbps these days, and toolame can
produce 192kbps joint-stereo mp2's that will play on most mpeg audio
players, this should make a decent standin for a mp3 encoder under
circumstances where other replacements like ogg vorbis may be unworkable.
