Windows Music Management?

I'm in the market for a new tool to manage my growing collection of music in Windows.
I've been using iTunes, but I'd like to switch to something that doesn't lock me in
quite that much. I also have some wishlist items that I'd like to try an meet.

My requirements for the Ideal Music Management Software:

1. Ogg Vorbis Support
2. FLAC Support
3. No DRM
4. iPod sync support

And, optionally, but would absolutely make my day:

5. Keep multiple encodings of single tracks and keep them associated. Ideally, this
should be used intelligently with the iPod sync support, so that it keeps low bitrate
copies of my lossless tracks that get used for the iPod.

Does such a beast exist?
