[Hpr] OGG feed

Yes - both would be downloaded and would cause double the bandwidth to
be use which is why two feeds would need to be maintained.

I know some podcasts use the Internet Archive at Archive.org to host
their shows. The license of HPR is compatible with their upload policy
so we could always use that. I think it would be a good idea to have
all the shows automatically posted over there anyway.

Going forward it would be desirable to have hosts upload mp3 and ogg
versions derived from the original material as re-encoding is not
desirable.

All this will probably lead to more work for the admins. I don't know
the process involved in creating the mp3 feed but the creation of the
ogg one could be automatically generated from it.
