I'm somewhat disappointed because ffmpeg does not seem to be able to
split flac/ape files according to cue file, or extract track names
therefrom and insert them into the mp3 file.

So eventually I will need to write a script to process all the *.ape
files, probably with bchunk. Which brings the following question. If
the file and directory names have spaces in them, a simple loop like
this:

#!/bin/sh
for i in `find . -iname '*.ape'`
do
  do_something $i
done

breaks on spaces.

What is the sh magic to handle such filenames?
