I was using the userland definition of "support", where it's a 2-way
thing. Minor changes in how the command-line encoder writes to stdout
could be enough to break the frontends that use FLAC.EXE instead of the
library, for example.
That should be the frontend developer's problem, but the end user will
only see "FLAC not working", and they will complain loudly about it on
their chosen Web forum.
