Yep, looks save, and I just tested it to make sure on i386 and macppc,
so, works for me.

I just made a test with the I think major sound file types, flac, mp3 and ogg
on i386 and macppc, and on both they work fine. I was using the Sndio backend.
Musicbrainz has some little flaws, but I wouldn't mind. Maybe with a new 
version, someone else becomes so annoyed of it, that he may look at it and
send a patch, who knows ;)

I also just removed all the NSLog debug statements from the Sndio backend.
I think it works really well for me. 

Don't know whether its worth asking for testers on discuss@ mailing list?
But with MPDCon, I also never got feedback. We'll probably get more feedback
later on with a released tarball, when more people may start using it.
So from my side, its fine for a release.

The only think is this Info/"Send a bug report" menu, should be updated, and 
pointed to something
better. Right now its still trying to send to Wolfgang Sourdeau ;)
Its in Frameworks/Cynthiune/MailService.m.
Or maybe just open a link to the GAP bug tracker?
