I'll send a patch over once I give up on fixing 9/7 + lossless. I feel
like pulling out the big guns and writing a genetic algorithm to attempt
to find the ideal implementation of a reversible 9/7 dwt/idwt transform
that produces the exact same inputs and outputs as your old 9/7

Right now I fear that lossy mode is ever so slightly compromised and who
knows, the current 9/7 transform might be less than ideal.
