Nonsense. AAC is an extremely bad format which no one should encode,
only decode. It's massively over-complex and unable to be implemented
efficiently, whereas vorbis (which scores much higher in all the
double-blind listening tests I've seen) has very low complexity and
excellent compression.

Vorbis also has the advantage that all the Xiph patent trolls are
claiming it's patent-free and the industry believes them.
