Which brings to the next level question that always bothered me: the
medibuntu's version is suposed to have mp3 support, but it also
doesn't work without the separate package (which they strangely also

Anyone does not agree that this makes medibuntu's version exactly the
same as the original repo's, except for the scarry legalese
