[matroska-devel] Changing of the codec IDs for PCM

HI all,

as agreed on IRC today we will change the codec IDs for native PCM ( not 
ACM compatibility ) to

'A_PCMBIN' : Big Endian Integer

'A_PCMLIN' : Little Endian Integer

'A_PCMBFP' : Big Endian Floating Point

'A_PCMLFP' : Little Endian Floating Point

The bitdepth will disappear from the codec ID ( too many possibilities ) 
and should bet set/read in the according element


This makes implementation a little bit more difficult, but is more 
future proof. Please change all your tools accordingly until April 30th.

@jcsston : Jory, out of curiosity, does your WAV2MKA support 32 bit 
floats already on input ??
