I'm working on it, but it'll be a patch to oggenc instead of libvorbis
unless someone can think of a good way to extend the libvorbis API.

The logical way to handle that would be to add a new 'padding' field to
the vorbis_comment struct, but it would be difficult to do without
breaking the ABI since old apps would still be using the original
struct -- and defining a new struct would mean defining new functions
that accept that struct.
