No kidding. The lack of a generic Ogg format plugin (or a generic vorbis 
plugin) has really hurt us with theora, since people could have been 
making vp3+vorbis movies for the past two years, and just run it through 
a simple filter for lossless transcode to Ogg Theora. Or making masters 
in Ogg MNG+FLAC.

Anyway, I was just pointing out that you can play ogg vorbis files in 
iTunes. :)
