Probably, but sometimes you just have to be realistic. I'm happy to  
go with double sample rates if no one screams. I've had a quick look  
at my code and it should be an easy transition - the most common  
thing I do with the sample rate is cast it to a float or double and  
store it somewhere anyway.
