To normalize doesn't refer to changing bit-depth at all. It's about
detecting the loudest sample in a file (or selection), calculating a
multiplier that will give it the highest allowed value and then applying
this multiplier to all the samples.

This is of course neutral at best regarding quality, but makes handling
material from many different sources a bit easier. So I hope, at
least :)

I asked for 32 bit float mainly to not have people recording with a JACK
application submitting exports to an integer bit-rate.

I want to avoid conversions and 32 bit float is a given because I will
edit in Ardour :)
