[LAU] An Easier mp3Editor?

Hi Karen,

If, as I understand correctly, mp3 is one of the blocking aspects, may I 
ask why you strictly need mp3? Is it because you have a (hardware) 
player which will only support mp3? Or for file-size reasons? The issue 
with mp3 is that it is a patent-encumbered format and therefore very 
hard to integrate into software (especially encoding - i.e. saving).

Sorry this doesn't answer explicitly your question, but may help provide 
hints if after all we discover mp3 is not such a hard requirement.
