Good to hear. 🙂
Just for your info:
This obviously works with clients who support ogg/vorbis, like Rhythmbox.
iTunes will choke on these, as will a soundbridge.
If you only listen through Rhythmbox, your solution is great. Otherwise, not so great – but there is no real fix for this out, yet.
Transcoding based on the client is something that is being worked on, rest assured 😉
