well, my usage of that tool is simply to get the duration from
files with a PHP script indexing my music archive, that call is
unchanged the last 7 years and so i continue to refuse the benefit
of throw a package out of the distribution because there is no
new upstream release

$handle = popen($GLOBALS['music_bin_mp3info'] . ' -p "%S" ' . escapeshellarg($path), 'r');

yes, i know that it is not a fedora package

but it is a good example of something used and just works with our
witout new upstream releases
