http://etree.org/faq_seed.html#8 is the best info on sector boundary stuff I
can find at the moment.  It's not much, but it's the basic info.

If anyone can dig up anything better, please pass it along, and I'll add it
to the etree FAQ.

it's easy to implement but it's not really a 'flac thing'... I
am assuming you just mean to check if wav file sample MOD 588 = 0?
(588 = 44100 / 75 sectors per second).  maybe a separate tiny
utility for checking it...

I'm curious actually

that would be cool.
