ogg vorbis can be created with constant bitrate (with the --managed option 
in oggenc). It's not recommended as vbr of course has a better quality, 
but cbr is possible (and should have a better audio quality than mp3 at 
the same bitrate).

What's so bad about ogm? I have to admit, I don't know much about 
container formats (I hadn't even heard about mkv and nut before), but 
what I read about ogm a while back sounded good (multiple audio streams, 
error tolerant, streaming support). Does it have any downsides?
