Hey all! I'm Bryan Jacobs.

I'll be implementing support for the Wavpack hybrid format's correction
file, to give you one codec that can be lossless or lossy without
transcoding!

I already made a post asking people what they thought would be the best
method to keep two files in the buffer at the same time. I think for
now I'll put it off and finish the rest of the work by using an
interleaved format (one block of Wavpack and then one block of
correction file). When that's done, a decision will have to be made as
to whether to:

a) Use MoB to load a second file into the buffer
b) Implement optional per-codec buffer handling
c) Implement an optional "second buffer" which may hold a different file

I look forward to working (on having fun) with all of you!

Bryan Jacobs
