Kate streams have the language stored in the main header, as I viewed this
as an essential part of the stream's description, so Ogg_ReadKateHeader
does not do any reading of the secondary header packets.

As all other metadata, including TITLE, LICENSE, etc.
See http://xiph.org/vorbis/doc/v-comment.html for the list of well known fields.

Reading the code, I think it might be as simple as delaying calling
until all headers are read, eg:
- if( p_stream->i_headers > 0 )
+ if( p_stream->i_headers > 2 )

2 being hardcoded for Vorbis/Theora (3 headers) in this example, other
stream types can be different.
