I know that we don't have native flac support in the hardware... yet..

How hard is that to implement? What are the major obstacles?

Just wondering how close it may be, if it is a priority, etc.

Yet to be determined.

Sean's time.
Apparently, since the firmware uses some upstream components that slim
can't redistribute the source for, the rest of us can't easily jump in
and help out. So we're waiting on Sean to have the spare time to work
on it.
