Hi Mike,
 sorry missed your post earlier, Yes, what you said is correct, and when we do 
find some samples and i can finish testing the audio decoder, there will be a 
new CODEC_ID, which can decode Fibonacci and Exponential encoded bitstreams. 
Uncompressed samples will be passed on to the PCM decoder like its done now.

Actually finding samples is so tough because nobody really used 
this "compression" scheme......the data rate is halved and it sounds like 
some heavy filtering has been applied to it......not good for musical samples 
i guess.
