i've seen this construct duplicated so many times :(.  i wish we had a native 
option for it.  maybe something like:
        read -A files -r -d '' < <(find . -iname '*.mp3' -print0)

perhaps there is another shell out there that implements something that can 
replace that loop that bash can crib ?
