Right now this is pure conjecture. I do not have this running anywhere
and will listen to whatever format it's in. (transcoding such as this
will always degrade the audio quality as you're converting from one
lossey compression to another lossey compression and they are lossey
in different ways, throwing out different things.

I just renamed an mp3 to ogg and WinAmp didn't play it.

It might need a slight modification to gnump3d to understand the
change in format and change the extension passed to the client.
Perhaps a new OGG MP3 transcode option.
