It's not even bash; just good old bourne shell.

It assumes your ogg files all have names of the form Track_NN.ogg
where NN stands for the track number.

$ cat ~/bin/tag

usage () {
  cat <<EOF
Usage: tag <directory>

Specify the directory where the oggs to be tagged
are located.  The "tags" file must be present and
all oggs should be from the same disc.
  exit 1;

if [ "$1" = "" -o ! -d $1 -o ! -f $1/tags ] ; then

cd $1
rm -f *.tags;

a () { echo "$@" >> disc.tags; }
t () { T=$1; shift; echo "$@" >> track$T.tags; }

. tags;

for i in track*.tags; do
  i=$(echo $i|sed 's/^track//g'|sed 's/.tags$//g')
  if [ -f Track_$i.ogg ] ; then 
    vorbiscomment -w Track_$i.ogg -c disc.tags
    vorbiscomment -a Track_$i.ogg -c track$i.tags
    vorbiscomment -a Track_$i.ogg -t "TRACKNUMBER=$i"
