Public bug report changed:

MP3 support has not been in Ubuntu since it's inception, most likely because of
the patent issues.  Here's a quote from a page (
http://www.petersblog.org/node/686 ) wondering why Ubuntu has no mp3 support out
of the box:

"It's a licencing issue. Every application that rips to mp3 must pay a fee to
the patent owners of the mp3 format."

So, this package should probably stay in multiverse.  Sorry.
