I can quote specs as well: "Packets are not restricted to beginning
and ending within a page". But that is besides the point. Putting
album art in a comment block makes much more sense than putting it in
a separate logical stream (for which there is no spec).
Anyway, in the mean time, I'll start using my own ogg vorbis reader
for this then :)
Thanks anyway,
