Easily? Hrm. Well, I don't think that little area in the Winamp window can display values like
4.5678. And don't forget that our encoder is not *the* Vorbis implementation, it is only *a* Vorbis
implementation. It's probably best that the decoder isn't tied to any one encoder.
But if we wanted to hide bitrate in the player anyway (what's the chances we'll see another
encoder), then it should *definitely* be an option. After all, I'll most likely to be encoding all of my
oggs with one setting. Therefore, the quality value is entirely *boring*. It may be geeky, but I
enjoy comparing output bitrates from song-to-song and genre-to-genre. :)
