Yeah, pretty sucky.  I couldn't for the life of me figure out any way to
have libvorbisenc produce a raw vorbis stream without wrapping it in ogg
packets.  Right now the vorbis encoder does a rough decode (more of a
dewrapping) and sends however many vorbis packets are in the next ogg

It's not necessarily per page (that would be horrendous). It's just per
ogg packet (which is still not good).  I think there is something in the
ogg packet that tells how many vorbis packets are in it.  But still,
this would pretty much require a full decoding of the ogg stream
produced by libvorbisenc to fully recover each individual vorbis packet.

Sorry.  I'll try to be more clear.  The vorbis encoder sets the frame
pts value as the granulepos of the ogg packet it's contained in (the
sucky part).  FFmpeg scales the pts value from the codec timebase to the
stream timebase when setting the packet pts value.  The ogg encoder
reads the packet pts value and currently tries to scale back to the
codec timebase to get the correct granulepos.  But it assumes the codec
timebase is 1/samplerate which isn't the case.  This produces incorrect
granule positions.
