I still think the DATE tag MUST be standardized! It doesn't
take ANY programminglanguage many lines of code to get a
localized output of a ISO datestring. Oggenc should refuse
dates not in YYYY-MM-DD format, because if it doesn't when
1.0final is released (and we will get a LOT of more users),
we will sit with an unfixable mess a few years from now!
Who is controlling the standard tags right now? Monty? The
authors of oggenc/ogg123/vorbiscomment?
This must be WELL thought out before 1.0final!
I'm thinking about using DISCNUMBER instead of
RECORDNUMBER.. What do you people think is the best one?
