already added to ardour 2.0 :)

the support for the formats is not there yet, so the only visible choice
right now is BWF or WAVE, but the code is all there once we get format
support. you get to choose data format and header format independently;
data can be 32 bit float or 24 bit int right now.

we are waiting to decide how best to handle WAVE64/RF64 w.r.t

you won't be able to use 2.0 and then be guaranteed that 0.99 will work.
but the other direction is assured to work, or you can shoot me.
