[flac-dev] Retuning FLACs compression levels

Hi all,

The compression levels in FLAC have been kept the same for a long
time, only preset 6, 7 and 8 got a slight change years ago. However,
as some parts of FLAC got much faster, I felt it was time to retune
the presets, to better use the now much faster parts.

There is a proposal at github here: https://github.com/xiph/flac/pull/576

I think there might be strong opinions on this matter. Because of
that, I'm letting the mailing list know of this proposal :)

Kind regards,

Martijn van Beurden
