I just don't see what it'll gain.  The vorbis stuff is equivalent (or better) 
quality, and the flac encoder means you never have to rip into a different 
format again, as it's equivalent to just storing the .wavs...  Easy to 
transcode to with no additional qualtiy loss if you need another format for 
something else.  Additional encoding options just mean additional 
complications for the user, unfortunately.
