Hi Rex --

What would it take to get them to do a quick review on ASF?  It would be 
wonderful if it were possible to get an answer from them on that.

Per Lucas's comments -- my worries aren't so much that MS or Apple is 
going to come after us personally.  If anything, they'd probably just 
send a cease and desist letter if they cared.  I'm more worried about 
TagLib being not included in distributions if it moves over into legal 
gray area.
