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.

In case of pure text metadata this issue is negligible but imagine 10 album tracks containing each 1MB cover image, now wanting to cleanup the superfluous non audio data there's total 10MB of discardable data blocks that can't be freed?
