FLAC is moving from id3 tags to vorbis comments. Could you please add support
for this feature? metaflac is usually used to add these tags.

    If you pick flac you can use grip "encoder command-line"
    options to populate the vorbis_comment fields with id3v2
    data, but NOT all. This is bug (incomplete implentation or
    documentation) in the grip command (%) switches. There is
    no switch for comment field and all the unparsed stuff. I
    experimented so that XMMS would have a comment tag, but I
    there is no other % switch.

    I experimented with:
    -V -T TITLE="%n" -T ALBUM="%d" -T TRACKNUMBER="%t" -T
    ARTIST="%a" -T COMMENT="" -T CDDB="%i" -T GENRE="%G" -
    T DATE="%y" -o %m %w

    I modified this from:
    http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?
    msg_id=3770790
    Which mentions XMMS parsing of these tags, e.g. "ARTIST=",
    but generic comments are undefinded in this thread:
    http://lists.xmms.org/pipermail/xmms-devel/2001-
    April/001941.html
    + ADD_TAG("artist", performer);

    + ADD_TAG("", user_comment); /* "" = user comment
    */
    + /* Also do these without ALL_VORBIS_TAGS in order
    to keep
    + * existing comments */

    So the command line could use comments switch, e.g. %v,
    for all data and some polish in getting the specific data
    tagged for XMMS.

    There's a workaround you can use for now, by using the field
    "encoder command-line" in the config, e.g. I use this for
    oggenc:

    -q 6 -o %m -a "%*a" -t "%*n" -l "%*d" -G "%*G" -c
    "DESCRIPTION=Ripped from CD" -N %t -d %y %w
