I assume it should always indicate success for a close, or does it need to
generate an error when close is called multiple times?

Why exactly is a 64 bit offset used?
32 bit (signed) seems enough for more then one year music at 128 kbit/s.
And tell if still 32 bit.

It seems the docs aren't up to date.
At http://www.xiph.org/ogg/vorbis/doc/vorbisfile/ov_callbacks.html it talkes
about int64_t , while that should be ogg_int64_t
One small question:
When will the oggenc support mono?
When will it support 22050 hz?
If the answer is beta 4, when can beta 4 be expected?
