I foresee a problem here, with the UI, namely that it won't be portable.
Unless someone knows of a good cross-platform gui package I don't see
how we can make one program that works on Windows (native gui), Linux
(GTK? QT?), BeOS (native) etc. So there'd have to be either a whole
bunch of programs, or we'd need to create an abstraction layer in
between the app and the GUI part.

But there's an Ogg tag standard already! (I think, Monty/Jack?)

I'd say that you need a Windows programming book, and since I'm a Linux
guy (I switched from Dos to Linux programming wise, much easier than
Dos->Windows, but I digress) I can't really help you there.
