To me, it sounds like whatever transcoding is set up here might be the
same backend for transcoding before writing files to generic (incl.
ipod) audio players. (just a thought). However, in some sort of dialog,
the DAAP-Server setup and Generic Audio Player Plugin dialogs, resp.
there would have to be a switch to set the default bitrate, plus, the
transcoded mp3 shouldn't have a bitrate that appears to be higher than
the input ogg file.
