We don't plan any more improves to 112kbps and up for 1.0.  So unless
there are any major bugs, you should be fine until post-1.0, although I
think it's reasonable that quality will continue to improve post-1.0.

The real area of work is now going to be the low bitrates (they work
now, but aren't tuned) and fleshing out the rest of bitrate managment

It's fairly hard to ABX ogg at 128kbps in my opinion.  Monty can usually
pick it out, but even he will have a sample fool him now and then.
