I'm after getting the better psychoaccoustics I was told would be in
Vorbis 1.1, because I want to re-encode my CD collection at a slightly
higher quality, perhaps 3 instead of 2.  I would like to do this with
the very best in psychoaccoustics, so I've been holding off for 1.1.

    Creative brains are a valuable, limited resource. They shouldn't be
    wasted on re-inventing the wheel when there are so many fascinating
    new problems waiting out there.
