How about including musepack (aka MPEGPlus aka mpc aka mp+) encoder and

I didn't know that musepack was open source. I thought it was closed some 
time ago, but I might be wrong. Anyhow, it's lisenced to LGPL and sources 
are downloadable from:

I have the impression that it is great for high bitrates. Also the 
following comparison rates it #1 for bitrates >160kbps:
