Embed cuesheet into OGG file utilizing its Chapter Extension?

Is there a way to embed a cuesheet into OGG file utilizing its Chapter Extension?

Alas, Utilities menu of Foobar2000 2.1 provides no way to edit chapters of OGG in the same manner we can edit chapters of M4A files via “Utilities/Edit MP4 chapters…”. Which quite strange, because Foobar2000 is able to create multi-track OGG files via “Convert/.../Destination”.

I even tried ffmpeg -i in.cues.flac -c:a libvorbis -q 8 -map_metadata 0 out.cues.ogg, but this only transferred cues into a tag CUESHEET, leaving Foobar2000 and other apps indifferent — OGG is still displayed as a single file in the playlist.

Here's an example of a Vorbis file with chapters (cues) that are displayed correctly in MPV and MPC-HC players, but not in Foobar2000. By the way, Opus has the same chapter format. Let's get this off the ground. @Peter, please?

Thanks for the sample.

It would appear that there is an inconsistency in the specification:
At first, they declare that chapter numbers are 0 based (specifically, from 0 to 999), then give an example that starts with CHAPTER001.
Some tools use 0-based indexes and that's what my code expects, at least that's what I found in sample files sent to me when implementing this.
Unfortunately, your file starts with CHAPTER001. This currently doesn't work - foobar2000 gives up not finding CHAPTER000. This will be addressed shortly.

Embedding cuesheets in Ogg, noted, next update will enable this.
