[flac-dev] identical audio but not identical unrecognized chunks

Dear all,

I've converted a wav file to flac but during the process three wrnings 
were casted. One of them I recall, it said that a BEXT chunk is 
unrecognized and thus ignored.

Wouldn't it be posible to keep the unrecognized information as is when 
decoding the file?

In general the extra chunks are located before or after the audio 
content, and represents a tiny part of the whole file, so it oould 
affect only very slightly the compression ratio attained.
