[theora-dev] Theora-tools: Theoracomment

Hi all,

I've attached a SVN diff for theora-tools, adding a simple 
"theoracomment" utility; it is intended to be the counterpart of 
vorbiscomment for theora/vorbis-ogg-files.  It shares vorbiscomment's 
usage/features (and the frontend-code).

While the main functionality is already there, there are still some 
* No support for chained streams
* It simply uses the first Theora-stream it encounters, so you can't 
comment an arbitrary one or an audio-stream
* I18n is only there as "stubs"
* You have to use the raw-flag, utf8 is still missing

And some other things still needed:
* man-page
* correct usage/version output
* Header-comments for the correct license

Concerning the license, I suppose it will be at best BSD as the other 
theora-tools, but then we would need a relicense of vorbiscomment which 
is currently GPL.

I'd be glad to hear your comments to my code, although it worked for me 
in some tests (including really large comment-headers to see if 
re-pagination and the like works), it was my first attempt on using 
ogg/theora, so it was a bit like trial-and-error development...
