Limit sound length
Some sounds have an unknown length, and the user can specify a maximum sound length for such sounds, so that they don't play forever.

Sounds can be added from commandline, just add the paths, like this: bzrplayer mysong2.mod song2.sid. Use quotation marks if the files contain spaces.
You can control BZR Player with sockets by sending commands to port 9859, good for integrating the player in other software
