Directory-based management system for audio files

Cjukebox is a management system for audio files and play lists which relies solely on directory structures instead of a database. When available, freedb.org database records can be used to improve the presentation. Playback is handled by the Musicus tool, which directly uses xmms plug-ins, so Cjukebox can play all music formats supported by xmms (wav, ogg, mp3, mpc, etc.). It works with the remote controls suppported by lirc, and provides hotkeys for immediate playback of up to 10 playlists. It also supports an external info script hook for conveying information about the song currently playing, a "badlist" (suppresses songs you don't want played), and a "goodlist" (adds the current song to this list with one keystroke so the user can come back to it later).
