The scripts are not intended to be full-featured music archiving programs, but only for quick storing of few audio data. It does not use databases like CDDB or have any extra features. You may look at icedax if you need them.
ogg123 is provided by the vorbis-tools which needs to be installed separately. See www.ogg.org for more information.
