Will this actually work?  I've recently attempted to reverse this; resample my 
mp3's into oggs as my ogg-loving friends are convinced that I can have high 
quality stereo audio at the same bitrate as my lousy audio quality mono mp3 
feed I am restricted to in order to stay under 48kbit up for streaming to 
myself at work.

The problem was that the file extensions were wrong, the file I streamed was an 
ogg, which I did by piecing together the mp3 resample paired with an ogg 
encode, but it wouldn't play correctly in Winamp or XMMS.  If I saved the 
stream, renamed it .ogg, it would play correctly.

So is there something more you're doing, or is this just conjecture at this
