mp3fs transcoding FUSE filesystem

MP3FS is a read-only FUSE filesystem that transcodes FLAC audio files to MP3 on the fly when opened and read. It is useful to enable the use of your FLAC collection with software and/or hardware that only understands MP3s. It is also a novel alternative to traditional MP3 encoder applications. Just use your favorite file browser to select the files you want encoded, and copy them somewhere.
