Oh, sure, I know that. Even I have much higher priority items for Nokia
to get working on, things 3rd parties can't do, like getting proper
Debian upgrades working (flash the ROM, feh!).

Actually, it's already done -- both ogg-support and mogg seem to use the
tremor implementation (although maybe not on the DSP). It's a little
confusing to get working right now (see my ranty review), but a little
cleanup and things will be quite usable.

    system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
    world.       -- seen on the net
