convert mp3 to ogg

mp32ogg file.mp3
why would you want to convert mp3's to ogg? 1 reason is because ardour doesn't support mp3 files because of legal issues. this is really the only reason you would do this, unless you have really bad hearing and also want smaller file sizes, because converting from one lossy format to another isn't a good idea.
Sample Output
$ mp32ogg *.mp3
mp32ogg v0.11
