Will we ever see an option where we can encode a song to mp3 format and have it be lossless?

Since mp3 format is one of the most wildly used formats I'm surprised there isn't an option for lossless comprerssion. It sucks having only ALAC as the only option for lossless compression for the iPod.

No, that is not possible.

Why is it not possible?

Is there a supernatural force that stops the programmers of LAME from putting in a switch that does this?

No, just the small problem that the resulting file wouldn't be an mp3 anymore (and definitely wouldn't play in your iPod).

Why couldn't it be an mp3? Can one not turn a wav file into an mp3 without making the mp3 lossy? Just make it into the mp3 file structure?
