This graph shows the average PEAQ ODG change between 0.11.1 and 0.10
for 48KHz, Mono, 10ms frames, as a function of bitrate over a fairly
diverse collection of inputs:


PEAQ ODG isn't as good as real listening tests but these results
support the expectation of a small across the board improvement.
