$ oggenc in.flac -o l.ogg -a "Éric Claptøn"

$ vorbiscomment l.ogg
artist=Éric Claptøn
(can also do Greek)

I seem to remember something about this on the mailing list a while
back, you may want to search for unicode on vorbis and vorbis-dev.
I also have the following set in my shell:
Which may or may not be related, if you want to try it remember to do:
$ export CHARSET=UTF-8
before running oggenc in the same shell.

I've got it in my ~/.bashrc at the end as follows:
# For vorbistools
export CHARSET=UTF-8
