Aaron, very sorry for not getting back sooner, somehow this
slipped by... the integerized flavor of the encoder currently
only supports fixed prediction (no LPC) so the compression ratio
will be lower.  but it should not be 30% worse.  is it 30% worse
between integer 1.1.3 and integer 1.1.2?  or float 1.1.2?

also could you provide a short sample, .wav and integer-1.1.3-
compressed .flac?
