[Flac] FLAC: re-encoding

I wrote a little command line utility for this in C# - the lib it uses is a
little overkill for the task but it does work. As Josh noted there is no
compression gain, so I wouldn't bother unless you have FLAC's encoded with
older versions. I also think Josh said there's a .BAT file out there that
does the same thing.
Here's the file: http://idsharp.com/download/reflac02.zip
It creates backups and shows encoder/decoder windows by default, you can
turn these off with -nb (no backups) and -nw (no windows). Have flac.exe in
the same directory as the tool and run something like:
reflac -8 -r "c:\flac"
Which will reflac all .flac files in c:\flac, revursively (-r), with
compression level 8 (-8). The source is available if you're interested.
