Yea, this is pretty much the key. Even if nothing else, it's at least
useful *because* it's popular. In other words, the same reason why any audio
app realisticlly needs to support MP3 even though MP3 is probably the single
worst lossy audio codec out there (an assertion which, by the way, I would
love to be proven wrong about, just you know, so I don't pop a vein every
time I think about "average joe" and music players...).
