I don't know about that. Theoretically, one hears, it supports bitrate
peeling, but AFAIK nobody's implemented that anywhere.

Anyway, on the larger issue of playing ogg, the pulseaudio sound server
seemed to take quite a lot of CPU when I tried playing music, though
this was a long while ago... ogg123 from command line using direct alsa
was a lot better. Wonder if something could be optimized here without
losing functionality?
