Hi Oleg,

I do approve the patch, but I'm curious at your reasoning for the patch.
The libvorbis package is merely 600kB on my system and anybody doing
serious MP3 and audio manipulation will have both, libogg and libvorbis
installed anyway.

So, I find it rather pointless in adding this option, but if you have a
good use for it, I'm not gonna stand in the way.

Comment 4 Oleg Pudeyev 2008-02-01 22:33:24 UTC
I don't have a single ogg file on any of my computers. Yet I have, as
do you, both libogg and libvorbis installed. I use mp3splt to trim
crossfading from mp3 files I obtain with streamripper, and I don't see
ogg/vorbis getting popular for streaming radio any time soon. My
laptop however is rather low on memory, and loading unnecessary
libraries contributes to slow performance. Clearly one library in one
application won't make a big splash, but systematically making
optional dependencies truly optional will have a substantial impact.
Consider redhat vs debian -- the fact that deb provides for optional
dependencies tends to make debian-based installations noticeably
