(afaik) Ian is working towards patching libvorbisfile to read the first
vorbis logical bitstream in an Ogg file, eg. to allow playing just the
audio from a theora+vorbis file.

ie. libvorbisfile continues to handle vorbis only, the change in behaviour
is that it would no longer fail on files which are not vorbis-only.

Do you have anything against this?
