Make transposed tunes use the original audio. The aim of MIDI and MP3 is to allow the user to hear what a tune sounds like. For transposed bookes, I think this should be reused from the main booke page, because hearing it at the transposed pitch isn't a major help. And in fact given the way cello transposition is done, the sound won't be transposed anyway. And Jane hasn't complained. This will speed up building the bookes by removing audio generation, the slowest process, from the transposed bookes.

# Make audio required for the website but not for the book.
# They go into web/<book>.

if [ $# != 1 ]; then
    echo "Usage: <book dir name>"
    exit 1



mkdir -p $builddir

# Now, for each tune, make the tune bitmap and sound. Do this to temp
# files and rename into place to make updates as atomic as possible.
