Is it at all possible to edit tags for .ogg files with cmus?

No but - quoting from the feature list - [it] Can run external commands for the currently selected files (tag-editor for example).

You can bind for example:

bind common ^E run your-tag-editor {}

So when you press Ctrl + e in the common context, cmus will open your-tag-editor expanding {} to the currently selected files.

Do you know if cmus supports Vorbis Comments? –  Wuffers Nov 28 '10 at 21:13
    
I don't know and can't try right now but the man says: For vorbis style tags (for example in ogg vorbis and flac files), the special-name tag is ALBUMARTIST and the mark-as-compilation tag is COMPILATION. Vorbis tags names are case insensitive. –  cYrus Nov 28 '10 at 21:20
