Josh, as always, thank you for your prompt answers.

| Depends if you need the 'list' subchunk. It is WAVE metadata,
| not audio, and FLAC only stores 'fmt ' and uncompressed PCM audio
| 'data' subchunks. I need to do a FAQ and this would be on it but

Great, yet more places to go to get the full story. Plus, every time there's
a web-based discussion area, it means learning another type of BBS software.
That's one of the advantages of mailing lists: you read them all the same way
and you post to them all the same way.
So the skipped sub-chunk was insignificant, yet FLAC still gave me a dire
warning about it and claimed to have done an incomplete job of encoding the
audio. The sky wasn't falling; there wasn't even any rain. It's more as if
the tide were coming in while we were up in the hills.
After going from WAV -> FLAC with warnings -> WAV, EAC said the two WAVs were
identical. The metadata had to be different, because FLAC had discarded some
of it, so I guess EAC compares only the audio data. I could try comparing
them as raw files, but I deleted the extra copies.

And he doesn't read this list? Wonderful, more need to check more places. Ah
well; thank you for the pointer, Josh.
