The problem with mpplus is that it's propriatary and non-free.   Regardless 
of how good it is, that's not an option most people are willing to make.  
We can use mp3 but it's shady, lame doesn't use any of the iso code anymore 
but the whole idea of collecting royalties and all is a possibility.

I wasn't looking for a codec that could encode quality-wise.  lame already 
does that.  I was just suggesting that libvorbisenc should do the same, or if 
it's client controlled,  have an encoder that does the job of allowing users 
to choose if they want size biased ogg files or quality biased.
