*sigh* You're right. And I wouldn't want to suggest an "illegal" apt
repo either (although I've used ones in the past, like one that provides a
nice .deb full of win32 codec dlls for use with mplayer).
It's rediculous that this is so simple to achieve technically, and
all products involved are being provided for free, yet there's still all
this beaurocratic red tape involved in getting them to play nice together...
