Very glad to hear we've finally surmounted this obstacle!

Asheesh deserves some credit, too, for pointing us in the right direction
for applications to strip the annoying DRM out.

<Asheesh said> "It's very nice of Microsoft to offer the option to
let you back up the rights you have to listen to the music you've ripped
from your own CDs, and even more infuriating that the feature doesn't
actually work"

I couldn't agree more.  The fact that by default WMP will DRM-encode
anything you rip is a super awesome, totally useful feature as well.
