Don't I know it :)

Before you spend any significant amount of time, try the 1.9.x development
series at http://lly.org/~rcw/abcde/development/.

At this point I'm not accepting patches to 1.1.x unless it's a security
issue of some sort.

1.9.1 will theoretically call vorbize/oggenc if you type abcde -o ogg, but
I haven't had a chance to test that yet. I'm sure it has at least a couple
bugs, I just added the functionality Thursday.

It won't comment your oggs yet either, but at least it won't ID3 tag them.

Anyway, my main concern is Ogg's current lack of joint stereo support. I'm
reluctant to switch the default output type to ogg until that functionality
exists. That functionality may only be a few months out.
