While I think of it, if you want to go from MP3 to OGG you'll need an
intermediary step. I usually use WAV:

$ mpg123 -v -w tempfile.wav yourfile.mp3
$ oggenc -o yourfile.ogg tempfile.wav
$ rm tempfile.wav

I do not know how to extract any metadata (such as ID3 tags) from an
MP3 file, but it's easy enough to add them to a .ogg file either on the
oggenc command line, or using vorbiscomment(1).
