Rockbox would provide a firmware with Vorbis compatibility, and it's
not proprietary. There appears to be an effort to get Rockbox running
on the Clip at [1] but appears to have some issues still. Maybe you
could help contribute somehow? Alternatively, if you're willing to
give up your Clip, you could check out their list of supported devices
on which Rockbox runs well.
