heh, I did the same thing (adapting the musicbrainz code) except
mine generates a different output for the rest of my custom
metadata system. it also has a little bit better hash than
CDindex (which doesn't use all bits of the TOC). I offered
to publish it a while back but nobody asked for it.

there is a new option --cue in flac 1.1.1 that can replace the
tedious --skip and --until calculation:
