Good point, Chris. I do not want to make coding specifically for each 
package manager for many of the different distros. I follow the KISS 
princlple (Keep It Simple Stupid) when programming. Making a 
cross-platform/universal way to play an ogg file is better than being 
specific for each individual system.

Remember KISS.
