That's what I thought, and was surprised to find a supposedly "free"
codec for it.

Ideally I wouldn't touch WMA with a ten foot bargepole.  But,
occasionally, I want to listen to something off a website.  I do use ogg
vorbis for my own encoding.  And I've never found MP3s to encode well,
on any system, I can always hear nasty sound effects, even at very high
bit rates.
