As long as Android obviously has a rather poorly performing VM and no 
support for playing software generated PCM samples (except for writing 
them to a temporary WAV file and telling Andorid to play it after 
decoding is complete) it's not feasible, but a "real" Java 
implementation of FLAC is very much feasible.

Ben: Patching the Android operating system with C code won't be an 
option for the regular Android user, or did you hope Google would adopt 
the code in a future official release of Android?
