I know i *CAN* get round it, but I still think it would be better to not
have to... (i do, of course, have CYGWIN!)

For one thing, if we play MP3s from the mounted rockbox, we have to exclude
the .dirname.mp3 from WinAmp or whatever.

I still vote for a different extension :)

ps. (changing topic completely!) Why cant the VoiceFont live in the CVS ?
does CVS not support binary files?
