MP3 support in K3b

Due to MP3 being a patented format and Ubuntu's policy of not allowing patented software in their default installations, K3b isn't able to burn music CDs from MP3s out of the box.

Luckily adding MP3 support is very simple and only requires one extra package to be installed:
sudo apt-get install libk3b2-extracodecs
