That's what I have been using.  Few more clicks than I really want, and
doesn't integrate at all with re-encoding.

Looks more and more like I will be ripping every CD twice :-(

There seems to be some lag in getting support for the --quality switch to
oggenc.  But converting a script that calls an MP3 encoder to vorbis using
the --quality switch wouldn't be any harder than converting it to vorbis
using the various bitrate switches.

I'd love to see your code to see how you go about getting the CDDB info
and build filenames out of it . . .
