What are all of the audio codecs that are supported under Zaurus?

So far I know of:
  • MP3 (MPEG-Layer 3) - plays on default audio player and most (all?) audio players
  • WAV (Uncompressed) - *gag*
  • OGG (Ogg Vorbis) - plays on "MediaPlayer" after installing special plugin
OGG is roughly twice as good as MP3, but neither of them are very good at doing what I need. I have many audio books I want to listen to on my Zaurus. Previous to my Zaurus I used 5 kbps RealAudio and/or 5 kbps Windows Audio. MP3s can only go down to 16 kbps (and most encoders can only go down to 32 kbps). Ogg Vorbis can only go down to 9 kbps (and forces the file to remain stereo), and even this is only possible if I encode the audio file to an 8 KHz uncompressed WAV file and then encode OGG using the lowest audio quality (this is the solution I'm currently using and the quality is fine for audio books... but it is a waste since it requires stereo even though the source is in mono).

Are there other audio codecs that are supported under the Zaurus through any means, hacks, installations, etc?

OR...

Is there a way to encode MONO OGG files (so I can get down to 4-5 kbps?)
