Hi Richard!

Sorry but I had not even heard  of APE tags before your post to the list.  
I had to go look it up to figure out what you were talking about.


I do not think that RDImport supports the importation of these tags, but  
considering that Monkey's Audio has an SDK it might be possible to  


I am copying the Rivendell programmers list  as well on this so that if  
some one there wants to take this on or discuss it further they can easily.
