OK.  Related question.  I had a number of flac files that I burned to CD (as 
cdr), and then converted the flacs to oggs to save HD space.  I have since 
gotten an iPod that doesn't play ogg.  

I don't mind so much more loss if the ogg is converted to mp3 (or aac) for the 
ipod only, but don't want to replace the oggs on the hard drive.  Does anyone 
know of a plugin or something that will allow amarok or gtkpod to do this on 
the fly while uploading to the device?  Any other suggestions?  It would also 
be nice for flac files I still have.
