Not sure if you saw the post over in Hydrogenaudio so I thought I'd bring it up here.

Is it too late to change the format/structure of the Encoder Info block? It was suggested that it could be useful to store more information about the --quality setting used for encoding. The original poster wanted to store two decimal places but that would take at least 10 bits. However, using 7 bits (the 4 currently used as well as the 3 unused bits) we could store one decimal place and still keep the Encoder Info block at 32 bits.

That way we could save --quality 0.0 - 10.0 and still have some room for some reserved/experimental settings.
