That is does. I'm afraid it only wants to build mp3 files.

Well, sometimes you just overlook the easy way, right? :) I feel silly now.
It works, though not flawlessly. At least XMMS playing there's a small
glitch when the first song turns into the second within this new file. Also
a funny detail, I renamed the file so that it has the intro name and the
song name that comes right after the intro. On the album it's a flawless
transition. Now when the glitch happens, the song title in XMMS playlist
also changes to the original song title. :) However, if I start the song
over, it shows the title I wrote.

I can live with this, but I'm gonna look for something that would do the
same without the glitch. Thanks Peter!
