Good to know. :) I agree that Peter Balkner (bs1770gain dev) is someone
to avoid regarding his political opinion (I had already seen the “Trump”
line, but the new one from today is also interesting…), and I especially
reject the use of bs1770gain page/changelog to promote them, but if we
start to reject every piece of software based on who wrote it, we’re
gonna have some troubles I think…

Anyway, while this gets implemented in beets, I’ll stick with
bs1770gain, but I wont hesitate to make the switch to this new tool (and
package it) if it performs at least similarly for my usage. I’ll still
continue to maintain bs1770gain for a while even if that happens,
because for now regainer[0] seems not to support ATSC A/85 for instance
and more generally has way less features, among which some might be of
interest to specific Arch users.

Anyway, thanks for mentioning it, and I’ve added two IRC channels to my
“places to be” list. ;)
