Then this is the least of your worries.  An asskicking application
will require you to use libboot and libkick, and these need to
communicate (quite violently) with the remote procedure "ass".
Ogg/vorbis is trivial in comparison.

Anyway, why do you americans have such a thing against donkeys?  You
all need your arses kicking.
