I've been using 512 sample FFTs, seems *realsonably* fast, but my maths
is screwed up somewhere, the results I get out aren't quite right,
there seems to be some smear.
I haven't looked at it in a few weeks, so maybe the bug will be obvious
after at break.
I havn't seen that algorithm, but I'm developing GPL plugins, so patents
are something I want to steer well clear of.
