I patched abcde so that it can encode flac files. The patch will not
be included in the current version of abcde 1.9.x/2.0.x, but in the
2.1 series.

I thought, that users of flac might find this link handy:



Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines.

I'll apply these patches, but not to 1.9.x/2.0.x. I've been promising
2.0 to people Real Soon Now(tm) for a few months...

Thanks for your contribution. I really hate to put you off like this, I hope
you understand. Once I create a 2.1.x tree it will be included.

For those of you on the mailing list wondering what the patch is (listar
eats attachments), I've made it available at
Robert Woodcock - rcw at debian.org
double a,b=4,c;main(){for(;++a<2e6;c-=(b=-b)/a++);printf("%f\n",c);}
