  their ~/.tangerine, specifying which file extensions are permitted.

  requires specific enabling in the config file.

  The attached images show a small music collection being served as

  stanza added to ~/.tangerine:

  filetypes = .ogg,.mp3

  Multiply the effect by a few hundred albums, and the effect is
