    yes, the basic functionality works (i.e. for all practical purposes it is
    perfect). If you need something exotic like locking then I think it is
    currently on 2.4 TODO list as being merged.

    Basically, I sucessfully ripped 3G worth of audio tracks, cat'd them all
    together as one file and lame(1)'d them all into a single (much
    smaller!) mp3 file. So it is safe to say - it just works. And I didn't
    upgrade glibc or anything like that. I only upgrade the kernel (and all
    other relevant bits like modutils).
