Depends on the level of support. Full-support (using libflac or libflac++)
will involve quite a lot of work. A fork+pipe support (as is the case with
mp3, ogg and others) would be easier, but you would lose in functionality
(things like seeking are difficult to implement if using pipes). I don't
have time to do this just now (at least not before 2.2.0), but I made an
edi of it anyway:
(edi-32): FLAC support.

I also made another audio-i/o related edi:
(edi-33): Libsndfile support.

Libsndfile seems to just keep on improving, and is used in a lot of apps.
My plan is not to make it a required component, but use it to provide
support for more exotic fileformats.
Btw; If you look at http://www.zip.com.au/~erikd/libsndfile/ ...
it might be that in the future we could get vorbis and
flac support through libsndfile...
