I wasn't hoping for lots of happy people for this but... I supposed that
proper replaygain for MP3s was of some interest to many.

Has anybody else tried implementing what I described?

I haven't although it looks like you did a lot of work to get it
working -- thanks!

What's the benefit to replaygain vs. mp3gain? You implied it was more
accurate but I don't know the details of this. Is it simply more
accurate because it relies on the decoder to know about the special
replaygain tags, whereas mp3gain actually adjusts the volume in the
mp3 frames directly? How bad is this latter technique?

busy with a lot of things, right now. I would suggest filing a feature
enhancement request on bugs.slimdevices.com, and attaching your patch there.
That will make sure it doesn't get lost or forgotten.

I'm definitely interested, but I haven't had a chance to sit down and
try it out yet. I'm looking forward it though.

I'm even more intrigued by the possibilities this presents.
Since the sb2 uses mp3 decoding based on mad, maybe one day, with a
little luck, we'll see replay-gain without having to transcode.
