I *desperately* want to provide the cover art for my own album in PDF
format.  Presently I provide JPG in the MP3s; at 72 DPI it looks
really terrible.  Both my CD label and case insert use small text and
fine, precise vector graphics.

I *could* provide PNG or LZW-compressed TIFF, which allow one to
specify the resolution, but both would greatly increase the file size
in a way that wouldn't be at all necessary if I could provide PDF.

SVG would be acceptable too, but only if I could compress it.

If we could agree on some standard for providing vector graphic art, I
would be more than happy to implement it from the very first release
of Ogg Frog.

(I do not yet provide art in my Ogg Vorbis and FLAC tracks.)
