Actually, faad2 won't do the job.  The m4p format uses a variant of
the md5 hash algorithm to make it difficult to play this music on
anyone else's system.  It will play on my iPod and my iTunes
installation, but if I give the file to someone else, it won't play.

There's probably a key somewhere in the iTunes DB and installed on the
iPod that helps decode the hash.

I think I'll try jHymn, as suggested by anothe poster.
