I'd be interested in helping too.  I'm pretty new, but I think that JNI
would be the easiest way to go.  of course, never having done anything with
JNI, what do I know :)

Decoding FLAC is relatively simple, compared to other codecs
like MP3.  The three decoder layers are under 3000 lines of
verbose C.  A Java translation should be straightforward
enough.  A JNI wrapper of libFLAC might be easier and run
