How do I remove padding after deleting metadata?, Was: Compressing metadata?

HI!! Is there something able to rebuild a FLAC file from scratch or simply compress ezisting metadata? I figured out that when I insert an exhaustive tag such as large cover picture then remove it, the FLAC file won't shrink! Replacing an attachment by a bigger one obviously biggers the file. Of course I need the tool to preserve all existing metadata.

as you're using foobar2000, highlight all fields in the properties dialog for the selected files. right click>copy. now click on the tools button>remove tags. finally right click and paste fields.

as always, test on a subset of copied files first.

This didnot rebuild FLACs either. Seems metaflac only does the optimization.
Anyway I'd like the same function as Utilites->Optimize MP4 Layout for FLACs as those apply a fragmentation effect too.
