I've started to add TwoCCs to the multimedia Wiki.  Since there seems to
be a more or less official one for FLAC, I'm going to replace the FourCC
in riff.c by that TwoCC.  We'll be back at square one then, 5 illegal
FourCC values in riff.c, like before the Shorten addition ;-p

BTW, flac support in ffplay appears to be broken.
