If I remember correctly gains were less then 0,5%, which for 20GB will 
be 100MB, not enough to get even one extra album in.

If you like the idea of that little extra gain while sticking with FLAC 
(for hardware/software support) you might look into FLACCL, that encoder 
is still actively developed.
