After WAV, what filetype should MP3-Boss support?

I'm already working on WAV...and have added a bunch of fields to support WAV.

Which of the following formats should I support next?

Musepack Audiofiles / MPEGPLUS
Monkey's Audiofiles
FLAC Audiofiles
OggVorbis Audiofiles
AAC Files

Re: After WAV, what filetype should MP3-Boss support?

The library that I'm using for these new formats doesn't support SHN, so it wouldn't be that easy to implement.  I see that I'd have to add MD5 support, and SHN evidently comes with additional text files that describe the music.  How easy is it all to handle?  Do you find that there are always 2 files that go along with the actual SHN music?  Is there any embedded tagging, or is it always a separate file?

Could you send me a couple SHN files so I can take a look?  I took a look at the SHN information sites, but couldn't figure out how to download the legal bootlegs.

Is the format commonly used?  Where did you get the files?  Do you create them yourself, or are they from the legal bootleg sites?

i find them here http://www.archive.org/audio/etree.php and other places mostly traders etc. the md5 is for verification but i've hundreds that i've never bothered with. also usually a text file with names of songs and other info like when recodeded etc. check out the site lots of bands list is here http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php they have over 2700 live grateful dead concerts among others.
this site explains it better than i can http://wiki.etree.org/
they also have a plug in for winamp on one of the links. the archive site makes it dirt simple to download before that it was from news groups and some bit torrent links. sound is a good as you can get many of the bands give sound board feeds etc. if you like live music it is the way to go. the files are big try using the archive site if you have any problems let me know.
