    if i try to tag a file that has an ampersand in the file name, it will fail with this:

    > Parameter format not correct -
    > 'blaablaa' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    > operable program or batch file.

    "blaablaa" being the text right after the &, and this happens even if the file name is quoted.  what can i do?

    one possible solution: move the file to a /tmp directory, give it a temp name (oh, like "temp.m4v"), do the AtomicParsley thing, then rename and move and it back into place (replacing).
