That probably would not happen for a couple of reasons.  The main
one is that I think Monty is pretty set on redoing Squish in the
future.  Another is that removing the system-level and metadata
stuff from FLAC so it fits nicely in Ogg is a lot of work that I
really can't do in the forseeable future.
