just to clarify, my agreeing was mostly toward that the reference code
should not be added to ffmpeg svn or supported by ffmpeg svn.
i have no oppinion on doing somehing with it in the soc tree.

ok, if theres no fixed point reference, then theres also no point in
writing one for regression/compliance tests.
That would leave fpuless cpus as primary use case, anyway, iam not
insisting on supporting both for the initial version of qcelp that
gets commited, better just one but otherwise fast and clean code.
fixed point support could be added later IMHO ...

For the love of all that is holy, and some that is not, don't do that.
