Yesterday, I've found a bug in my script for generating
the .dirname.mp3 files: it doesn't deal very well (read: not at all)
with file names containing characters that are special to the shell
(like, say, space). I've hacked up a fix but was too tired to test it
thoroughly. I will do so ASAP and hope to have a version ready for
public consumption late this evening (CEST).

Btw, if you have directory names like "The_Visit" instead of
"The Visit", Festival voices those as "the underscore visit". I'm not
sure yet whether to change this as well.
