Alaw and Ulaw algorithms slower and cleaner?  Slower would imply problems
with FAX or whatever.

Not sure how uncompressed audio could be cleaner and why on earth one would
want it slower?

What's next?  The new, improved, under new management, SLIN?

PS, I am sure (75% anyways) that this new algorithm is good for
