	So, figuring 1mb per minute is 36000 minutes of music. If we
	assume that oggenc takes 2x realtime on a p2-450 and assume
	(generously) that a p200 is half as fast as the p2, we're looking
	at 144000 minutes, or roughly 100 days. Realistically, it'd be
	more like 150-175 days, since my old-school p200 is less than half
	as fast as the p2-450 and it also does some other work on the net.
