 +Currently, urmp uses mplayer to play music, so mplayer must be installed.  Therefore, urmp does not contain any mp3 decompression technology -- all it does it read mp3 and id3 headers.  Because of this limitation, urmp can be distributed under an MIT license.  If urmp is ever linked against a library such as libmad, then it would fall under the mroe restrictive GPL.  In any case, the data structures and library code in the Ur library would remain under an MIT license.
