[Flac-dev] Rice coding

Going in details through the FLAC format specification, I realize that there
are 2 rice coding methods now supported for residual encoding. I thought I
remembered in the 1.1.3 times that there was only 1 method (with 4-bit Rice
parameter) [or was I drunk ? ;-)]. Going through the change log, I didn't
find any reference to such an addition to the format.

Now, the decoder implementation I'm working on only implements the
4-bit-parameter-method; I've been using it extensively, including on files
encoded with the reference encoder v1.2.1, and never stumbled on that second
method. Does the reference encoder implement that yet ?
