I think you could do one-machine-one-file with rsh/ssh, like
cat file.wav | ssh -c 'flac -c -' user at host > file.flac
or something like that. You won't get a total_samples value
in the STREAMINFO block that way though; for that you'll have
to flac onto an NFS-mounted dir or something.
multi-machines-one-file takes a true distributed encoder, which
is a project by itself.
