Compiles information about your mp3 usage

Mp3stat scans MP3 and Ogg files and generates a linear graph of bitrates per section of the file and a table of how many blocks in the file fall under a certain bitrate. It also lets you compare the effect (at least on bitrates) of using different decoders or codecs on the same file as well as seeing how different arguments on the same encoder affect bitrate. The batch file mode lets users compile data about their entire collection.
