OggWrit hasn't been implemented yet because libogg2 isn't being used in 
mainstream yet.  OggWrit, being a discontinuous codec, requires support 
that libogg1 cannot currently provide (and given that it's soon to be 
obsoleted, will likely never provide).

However, if you wish, you can implement it in libogg1 for decoding.  
It's really the encoding that support is missing for, decoding can be 
hacked pretty easily.
