No.  The decoder in libFLAC is designed to a 'pull' model and
you need a 'push' one.  There's no 100% accurate way to determine
frame boundaries in native FLAC without decoding.  A 'push'
decoder is possible but it requires a different design.

I don't know about Xine but it may still be possible within
its design to utilize a 'pull' decoder.
