vorbis-tools: should accept input in libsndfile formats
Reported by Rogério Brito at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=488458
It would be highly desirable to have oggenc to have its input section driven by libsndfile1, as that would allow, for instance, the codification of speech files taken from regular S1MP3 recorders to be vorbis files (some S1MP3 files record their files not in plain PCM format, but in IMA ADPCM format).
I am member of the upstream team of maintainers of lame and it currently has its input as libsndfile1 which makes things very flexible for users. Since I would prefer to put the lectures that I give on-line, I would be much more comfortable using Vorbis instead of MP3.
