*raises hand*

I have a lot of classical

TPE1 -> soloists
TPE2 -> orchestra / choir / other accompaniment

(BTW, Thanks to whoever added conductor support, now we just need TPE4 to get

I don't mind "lots of artists with a single track"

Vorbis seems open ended in there support, and I can't find a document
out there for vorbis that includes this concept.

The two sources google found for me..
