The decoding is officially fixed since RC1. RC1 was supposed to play
every future Ogg Vorbis file - because of that bug, 1.0rc2 is the one
actually being able to play everything. What you're asking for has
happened ~9 months ago already. :)

The RCs were introduced when the format got frozen. The final release
will then have all features implemented and bugfixed. Supporting tools
that let us actually use the features will then come after 1.0
