It is functional as far as I know. It just needs to be tested for
stability/security issues.  I think it's the same problem as the AC3
decoder where the coded values cause overreading input and/or
overwriting output buffers.  It needs to be tested with all the largest
possible values to make sure all the right checks are in place.  Using a
damaged stream and testing with valgrind will catch most of these errors.
