While you're certainly correct, I would still like to see a *real* step
forward, which would be to fund a decoder for OGG with a significantly
lower "horsepower" requirement that portable audio player hardware
developers and vendors would be inclined to support.  

In the meantime, getting people to convert to OGG as the solution of
choice for non-portable (and some portable) audio would be easier with
this link available.  If the Fedora community decides to support linking
to the Fluendo plugin, IMHO we should make intentions clear in this
respect.
