2.0: new SMP support (it will work with a single title )
       Network encoding

I do not want to patch 8hz-mp3 or bladeenc with a standard input function
anymore ! It is needed to work WITHOUT any tempfiles, but it make no sense,
´cause it will make your cd-rom very hot (esp. the 20x and higher) and reduce it´s livetime.
So you will ever need some swap space to use krabber !

Maybe a procedure to encode on multiple network connected computers.
So we should maybe write a kbeowolf class and configuration application ????
(maybe i will do this after an 1.0 release.)

something else ???
mail me.
