I started doing this a few weeks ago, and got pretty far (up to the
point where I could list and display such files with appropriate
metadata extracted.)  In theory it's probably not too hard to get it to
start playing, but I haven't done so yet as I ran out of time to work on
this more.  If you are interested, I can send the code I have to do
this.  Unfortunately, it's not as simple as simply just calling 
system("ogg123 %s").
