Wow, you work fast! :-)

I think it may be possible to get this soon, but I want to make sure everyone's 
kosher with it before it's frozen.  A big part of this is getting a "nod" from
Monty, Josh, and Jean-Marc, developers (respectivly) of Vorbis, FLAC, and Speex.  

I'm unsure if a week is long enough, but we'll see how things go.  We work in a 
decentralized manner, after all, so we shouldn't leave port without making sure 
everyone's onboard first.

The recognition of individual possibility,
 to allow each to be what she and he can be,
  rests inherently upon the availability of knowledge;
 The perpetuation of ignorance is the beginning of slavery.
