Apart from creating new views, playback isn't all that different, though you'd have to store the track and time position by default.

There's also the .m4b format, which is an aac file with embedded chapter data. Then there's DAISY, which is a whole other kettle of fish.

I'd kind of like audiobook support, too, at some point. Right now I use Audiobookedfor that, which is fine, but it's a bit buggy at times.

Thank you guys; hopefully eventually we can add proper audiobook support. It's probably a fair ways out though, as there's a bunch of things I'd like to add for music first.
