My results, with some correction (slight wording changes, beta1/2 dates
clarification) since the last post are attached. I'm also going to send
this update to the file(1) and magic directory maintainer
<christos at astron.com>.

See my magic, should be correct (checked on real file and against the
source and the documentation I could find; nobody here reported mistakes).
Uncomment all lines commented with `##' to get really verbose output. See
there for recomendations of what is reasonable to uncomment :-).

I previously managed to word it as `Ogg Vorbis sound data' or `Ogg data'
for non-vorbis ogg by using some messy repeated tests. Now I switched to
your wording, which might be slightly less elegant but shows the Ogg -
Vorbis releationship more correctly.

Didn't occur to me :-). So you still have to do this.

I'd like to include them if they are already specified. Are there any
Squish files floating around?
