I don't want to be starting no holy wars here, but... Isn't the precise 
problem that mplayer people have with ogg in that the paging structure 
necessitates too much CPU intervention, instead of allowing braindead, 
direct, DMA, scatter/gather? If so, isn't it the case that the problem 
is in ogg, not in Erik's reasoning?
