This command will convert all flac files to ogg in the directory it is 
run, keeping the tags. q7 is about 220k/s (what I use), 4 or 5 is 
probably ok for most people, and q1 sounds close (subjective) to 128k/s 
mp3, but is smaller.

find . -name "*flac" -exec oggenc -q 7 {} \;

Easiest way I've found.
