/* Create and initialise a state structure, takes a dither type, a number of
 * channels and a bit depth as input
 * The Dither type is one of
 *   GDitherNone - straight nearest neighbour rounding. Theres no pressing
 *   reason to do this at 8 or 16 bit, but you might want to at 24, for some
 *   reason. At the lest it will save you writing int->float conversion code,
 *   which is arder than it sounds.
 *   GDitherRect - mathematically most accurate, lowest noise floor, but not
 *   that good for audio. It is the fastest though.
 *   GDitherTri - a happy medium between Rectangular and Shaped, reasonable
 *   noise floor, not too obvious, quite fast.
 *   GDitherShaped - should have the least audible impact, but has the highest
 *   noise floor, fairly CPU intensive. Not advisible if your going to apply
 *   any frequency manipulation afterwards.
 * channels, sets the number of channels in the output data, output data will
 * be written interleaved into the area given to gdither_run(). Set to 1
 * if you are not working with interleaved buffers.
 * bit depth, sets the bit width of the output sample data, it can be one of:
 *   GDither8bit   - 8 bit unsiged
 *   GDither16bit  - 16 bit signed
 *   GDither32bit  - 24+bits in upper bits of a 32 bit word
 *   GDitherFloat  - IEEE floating point (32bits)
 *   GDitherDouble - Double precision IEEE floating point (64bits)
 * dither_depth, set the number of bits before the signal will be truncated to,
 * eg. 16 will produce an output stream with 16bits-worth of signal. Setting to
 * zero or greater than the width of the output format will dither to the
 * maximum precision allowed by the output format.
