OK, I thought so too.

Not to be too too pedantic -- but now that this question is out in the
open, how does ecasound convert PCM to float? I'm surprised to see
both small and large samples being distorted. And, indeed it seems
logical that for 24 bits the int - float - int conversion could be
made transparently.
