I haven't investigated UCI yet and even then I really don't
have time to do an implementation.  But, as of flac 1.0.4,
there is a new library libOggFLAC which would probably be a
good model for what you want to do, and the whole API has
Doxygen-based docs (see http://flac.sf.net/api/index.html).
libOggFLAC basically wraps the libFLAC encoders and decoders
so that FLAC frames go into Ogg packets.  Someone who knows
UCI well could probably create a libUCIFLAC based on this code
pretty easily.
