[vorbis-dev] Observations about the floating point data in vorbisfile

I noticed that when reading data with ov_read_float(), you can get
values outside [-1..1] when the stream is encoded at lower quality, but
with higher quality, the values trim down to inside [-1..1].
Looking at the plot from -q10, the data from ov_read_float seems

I've made some plots of encoding the start of Rammsteins Feuer from the
xXx soundtrack (it's a pretty loud soundtrack, but max is still max.. ).
These are plots of data read with ov_read_file, printf()'d and fed into
gnuplot. The x axis is sample number, counting from sample 900k

Looking at ov_read(), it clips the data to [-1..1], but I have encoded
files where samples go up to 1.45 which I suppose isn't right.

Both 1.0 and 1.0rc3 show similar stuff.
