first of all remember that theora is still alpha stuff but it's
getting there. I'm sure once it's 1.0 stable it will kick other codecs
ass :) just like they did with vorbis. Remember that vp6 (which is
better than mpeg4) is just an improved version of vp3 just like theora
so there is hope. (plus mpeg4 is just an improved mpeg2 :) )
secondly ogg is just a simple container, it doesn't have the ambition
to replace Matroska or anything like that, it does what it is intended
to do pretty well so it doesn't suck to me.
