Awesome.  So I guess it'll be easier than I thought.

cdrdao/gcdmaster will let you take large audio files and break them up 
into tracks without gaps, great for breaking up live performances or for 
doing things like concept albums where there aren't necessarily clean 
breaks between songs (ala Rush, Pink Floyd, Yes, etc)
