Sure it can save to .ogg.  However, if you want finer control of the
encoding parameters (bitrate, quality, et cetera), your best bet is to
use another utility.

Yes, OGG/Vorbis is a lossy encoding.  There's also OGG/FLAC, which is
lossless.  Personally, I cannot hear the difference between lossless
audio and a lossy codec at high bitrates.  I tend to encode music at 128
or 256 kbits/second, and that has always been quite acceptable to me.
Does anyone else notice a difference between lossless and
high-bitrate-lossy, or is my hearing worse than I think it is?
