Programs like gqmpeg shouldn't be using ogginfo if what they're trying
to do is extract tags. It's not meant to be used for that purpose.

No. This would only be useful for things that should not use ogginfo
in the first place.

A standalone app for that purpose? Not to my knowledge. Writing one
using libvorbisfile would be completely trivial. Really, applications
should be using libvorbisfile directly rather than executing an
application to do it.
