I've committed it, but anyone wanting to try it out should be aware
that m4a files edited in rhythmbox won't play in itunes, and I assume
won't play on ipods either.  I have no idea if this is a problem in
qtmux or something I'm doing wrong, but maybe someone who has more than
ten m4a files will spend the time to figure it out.  I'm not
particularly worried about this as the only people who have qtmux at the
moment are those going out of their way to test it.  Nothing has changed
for those who don't have qtmux installed.
