I dont think he was looking at the benefits or disadvantages of various
formats. Besides, if he has tons of shorten content, then it seems like
having to transcode all of it would be a downside to FLAC.

I know someone was working on a patch to add xmms plugin support to
mythmusic, which would address this, but i'm not sure how that worked out.
The short answer to the original question is that it'll require some work,
and there's not a ton of interest since FLAC is available, which is
apparently enough for some.
