Audacity probably isn't the best app for doing this, as it doesn't
edit .wavs directly - they are imported into a 'project', then
exported again. When exported, the .wav's sample format/rate is
inherited from the project, not the original .wav file (unless it has
changed recently - been ages since I've used it!)

mhwaveedit in Linux would be a better choice for this... not sure
about Windows apps though, possibly wavosaur or wavepad?

Or sox, of course :-).

My Freerunner hasn't arrived yet; when it does I'll check this out, it
should be fairly easy to write a shell script which will convert any
sound into a ringtone. It would be nice if there was an app on the
phone itself to do it too...
