While not 100% what you're looking for, I've had good luck myself with
a program called "RipperX" - it uses CD-Paranoia, CDDB, and can pipe
to either lame or oggenc.  However, it DOES create a intermediate wav
file, which it can be configured to delete after the encoding is done.
well here.


Hope this helps!
