On that topic, if its so sexy, any chance it can get committed, even
if it requires a duplicate codepath to avoid speed loss? ;)

(By the way, on that topic, I talked with the CoreCodec guys, and they
implemented it the same way my original patch does, which indeed
works: that is, putting the residuals into 8-bit pixel values and then
doing overflow-sums onto them.  This works as long as you assume the
input isn't supposed to overflow and clip, which the spec says should
be the case for compliant streams.)
