As a matter of fact, I haven't spent much time thinking about any 
specifics. The reason I was digging through the code in the first place 
was to see if; 1) there was a simple way to break out the decoding of 
the frame header so that I could find out how much data I need to buffer 
up before calling FLAC__stream_decoder_process_one_frame(), because the 
application I'm working on cannot request more data from within the 
flac_read() callback, and 2) see if I could get the decoder to work on 
my own buffer in order to avoid an unneccesary memcpy().

So although this is somewhat related, I haven't, for example, looked 
much at the encoder.
