Attached is a document describing my proposed changes to the buffering system. In the event that these are too controversial, we can tone it down and eliminate the issue of fragmentation while still serving Wavpack's needs by only allowing "chunky" allocations to extend at buf_widx - this will mimic the behavior of one file having the size of both the normal and correction files.
We can also do the codec-specific buffering code. At any rate, the summer is only half over and we're making steady progress, so things are in good shape.
