For marketing, of course! So you know where to file your CDs in the music
store or your MP3 files online so they end up being retrievable from the

Hey, I used to go to record stores that actually had a "Computer Music"
category... but that was 40 years ago... but now? Pffft. Just trying to
stay out of the New Music Ghetto whenever I can.
