My mistake, that's over-complicated.
New Bitstream ->
Z = effects codec
We would only need to divide A for the tail end, so we can start chain
in a new sequential track. Also, in case some players only played the
first concurrent Vorbis stream, start track 2 as the first stream, then
the tail end of A as the second concurrent. That way it'll cut only the
tail end of songs if the effects are not supported.
Less complicated view:
  
[ZZZ] [ZZZ] [ZZZ]
The "Effects" codec would only be needed to fade in/out the two vorbis
layers, and would end leaving the new track at 100%.
I'm using vorbis as an example, the same could apply to speex, theora,
I could probobally write up a rough draft for a simple effects codec in
a few days, but I need to make sure I understand all this.. also, from
reading people on IRC and on the lists, it doesn't seem that most people
I also forgot to mention, a lossless video codec for Ogg would be nice,
and there are already a few patent-free video codecs available. Would
make for great archivals.. but that's for another time, prehaps.
