|Summary||0001190: FLAC compression for MPTM samples/instruments|
Current OpenMPT and libopenmpt has a major feature: OPL3 instrument inside S3M and MPTM.
OpenMPT already has support for compressed format: MO3. But there are several drawbacks when using MO3:
By using FLAC for MPTM, user can get advantages such as:
And in addition to those advantage maybe there are also feature to use LossyWAV commandline binary for reducing FLAC size even further. So OpenMPT can also support lossy FLAC compression beside lossless FLAC without needing additional codecs.

|Has the bug occurred in previous versions?|
|Tested code revision (in case you know it)|
I understand that you want to see OpenMPT as a all-in-one solution to create the smallest possible music. However it is first and foremost a general-purpose tracker, and as such it doesn't make a lot of sense to add explicit integration for tools like LossyWav. If someone really needs this functionality, they can simply run all their samples through that tool.
