No, there is currently no flac support in iTunes.
If you were starting encoding from scratch you could use the apple
lossless codec, but that's very new.

Using iTunes database is quicker (I believe) only because iTunes has
already done the hard work of reading all the MP3 tags in advance.

I am thinking of doing this as I believe the itunes database to be
fasster?

Anyway, can itunes organise my flac songs for me?
