Yes, that is another thing to consider. My proposal keeps the 
decoding speed for all presets the same, but I don't think there 
is a problem in shifting things a little bit more. The above 
setting would make the decoding of -7 as CPU-intensive as -8 is 
now. Seeing that all FLAC-capable hardware that I know of has 
been decoding -8 without problems for years, there's probably no 
harm done with changing this too.

Any thoughts?
